As a teacher from a middle-class urban school district in Northeastern, Pa., my students mostly come from disadvantaged or single parent families. Many students are from single-parent families, and lack many real-world experiences, that many professionals take for granted. All students in my district receive free breakfast and lunch.
Some of my students have special needs.
They have a hard time focusing, and sitting still for long periods of time. They sometimes need a walk or a break to help get them back on track.
The items in this project will allow my students to have flexible seating options. Some students don't care for those hard school chairs that they sit on all day long. They wiggle and spin around trying to find a comfortable position.
Allowing my students to choose a seat they like will help to keep them all on task and learning in the classroom.
Some of my students have special needs, and they can't sit still or are up and out of their seats. Having another option, like a soft seat, lap desk or wobble chair can help these students stay more focused, and keep them comfortable at the same time.
