Mrs. Jaynes from Hickory NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need wiggle seats, modular seating, knee pads, and laptop stands as alternative seating to help them focus more on learning!
I teach resource students who are not currently performing on grade level. These students have disabilities that hinder their ability to learn. My students do not learn well in a conventional classroom setting.
My students suffer from learning disabilities that hinder them from performing on grade level.
They are unable to sit still for long periods of time. They need movement around the classroom to help with their learning. I currently use exercise balls that I have purchased on my own. This allows my students the opportunity to bounce and rock while learning rather than being up out of their seats or wiggling around.
I would love the opportunity to be able to provide more options for alternative seating in my classroom. I try my best to provide my students with an open opportunity learning environment. I let my students try lots of different things in order to see what works for them individually. This project will allow me to offer my students more options!
More than three-quarters of the students at my school come from low income households. Parents are not able to provide students with the tools that they need. These materials will impact my students in such a positive way! I have chosen wiggle seats, modular seating, knee pads, and laptop stands. Wiggle seats allow students with disabilities such as ADHD to move around and have movement while still in a seat. Modular seating is a great alternative to regular hard back chairs. These seats allow students to sit in a variety of ways. Knee pads allow students to set on their knees at a kneeling table. I also have a standing table in the classroom for those who do not do well sitting in chairs. My older student do a lot of their work on their computers. The laptop stands allow student to sit in their chair and work while not being at a table. They also can be used to sit in the floor and work. These materials will be used in an EC resource classroom.
Students will learn and grow in their studies by giving them different options to release energy and help them better focus.
Each child is an individual who learns in a different way. My hope is to find options that will work for each of them!
