Mrs. White from Carlinville IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfy, Cozy Classroom Climate

My students need a tranquil environment, without distraction from fluorescent lighting, and a wiggle seat is a tool that can help children with Autism (and other disorders) stay seated for longer periods of time.

My Students

My students are AMAZING AND WONDERFUL AND FANTASTIC and deserve the best learning environment I can provide!

I have students from a community that ranges in mostly low-economic to middle economic status.

My school is a low poverty school that truly considers the best interests of students above all else. Two of my students are diagnosed with autism, several have been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. My concern for all of my students is that they receive learning in the most optimal climate, one that promotes focus and learning.

My Project

My students are inundated with pen and pencil activities, though I work hard to give them many opportunities to work together and move throughout the classroom. I have found that with the lights off (or half of the lights off) our classroom is more focused, but can at times make my kids lethargic. With light filters, we can keep the lights on all the time while we are working and the fluorescence will not flicker of bother students with special needs. They also need to be able to sit comfortably for long periods of time. Wiggle seats will allow for good posture and movement while students are stationary. The two items I have asked for will help immensely to increase student motivation and learning will soar!!
