Mrs. Wallace from Wilmington DE is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfort Corner

Help me give my students a calming corner so they can pick activities to help them relax,calm down, take a minute or a few using the timers and then the students will be able to join the class.

My Students

I have not met my class yet but I am excited about the new school year starting. We learned a new curriculum last year and we need some movement breaks, soothing breaks a comfort corner to be placed in our class to help students be more successful and focused with learning. It’s hard having 20 5 year olds who go through enough trauma just getting to school. I love teaching Kindergarten and helping them to make the best choices throughout the day. Help our class please.

My Project

When my students have an area that is just for themselves, it helps them come back from having a tantrum, anxiety, anger or even just to refocus and join the group with more of a connection. I want to create a space where the students want to go and chill out and focus on what happened and what they need to do to rejoin the class. A cozy chair to relax with different types of timers so students can select what type of timer they need and if they need an activity to do or not. I know our class will love the new items.
