Mrs. Blackett-Munir from Brooklyn NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My school is in the heart of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY. The students in our Kindergarten through 2nd grade special education bridge class are warm, energetic children that have a variety of needs.

With the main diagnosis being Autism, many of the students are sensory seeking, require greater movement than most and require lots of strategies to remain on task.

As a provider for students with special needs our primary responsibility is to assist our students in benefiting from their educational program.

My Project

As a team, we have tried a variety of strategies that have helped our students remain on task and ready for learning. One of the most successful strategies has been the implementation of in class movement groups, but alas, we cannot offer movement groups all day long! However, we CAN transform our classroom by adding furniture that allows for movement throughout the day. This furniture would be a great step towards meeting our students’ needs.

The wobble chairs, ball chairs and foot rests will allow the students to move while they learn without leaving their seats.

The trampoline will be used for movement breaks, as needed, and to ease the transition between subjects.
