Mrs. Ferdinandi from Harrison NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bands, Wobbles and Stools

My students need the opportunity to move and fidget while working at their seats without distracting peers; especially if that's their best way of learning.

My Students

My students are second grade special educated superstars! As their eyes shine daily with the eagerness to learn, at times staying focused can be difficult for them. Overall, I've seen my kids thrive and succeed with encouragement and a positive environment.

My students are amazing each year; yet, I want to give them more.

Their classifications may be a factor to their way of learning. Providing them with a nurturing, caring, safe, healthy and productive environment are factors that I shall provide to build upon a dynamic education. Together, our students can achieve the impossible!

My Project

After much research and experience, I've witnessed the positive outcome of having chair bands, wobble cushions and stools. Having these in my classroom will contribute to an extra successful school year. This opportunity will help my special need students; especially those classified with ADD/ADHD, Autism and/or sensory needs.

Most importantly, this project will benefit ALL the students.

For some students, it will enrich their ability to stay focused for more then fifteen minutes. For others, it will enhance their focus throughout the entire day. The more focused they are, the more they can attain.

Students should have the opportunity to have full movement within a classroom without the distraction to the rest of their peers. That's exactly the environment I've proposed and want to expand on. These accessories will allow my students to remain seated yet have the opportunity to move and fidget all while working at their seats.
