TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students flexible seating options including cube chairs, Hokki stools, wobble cushions and a cozy calming corner with beanbag chair, soft seats, behavior board books, emotion dolls, fidget toys in their K3 speech and language classroom.
My students are three-and-four-year-old K3 students diagnosed with significant speech and language disorders. The students in my therapy group are bilingual, with Spanish as their first language. Over 90% of students at our school come from low economic backgrounds. My students attend a half-day program to receive speech therapy in a group setting and a language-rich environment. This intensive service delivery model allows them to work on developing the communication skills they need before entering the regular education classroom in K4.
My little ones are enthusiastic, energetic, and excited about learning!
They love to listen to stories, create art projects, build with blocks, do puzzles, explore in the sensory table, and dance! My classroom is all about using a variety of fun activities to develop basic communication skills in a safe space with maximum support.
Most of my students are enjoying their very first school experience. While it is my job to focus on developing communication skills, I also have to teach basic school skills and work to ease the transition from home to school. Three hours is a long time for three-year-olds (or anyone!) to attend speech therapy, so some of my little ones have difficulty with sitting and attending to activities. With three-year-olds, tantrums are inevitable. With three-year-olds who can't always express themselves, frustration is even more common.
We are requesting flexible seating options including cube chairs, Hokki stools, wobble cushions and a cozy calming corner with beanbag chair, soft seats, behavior board books, emotion dolls, fidget toys in their K3 speech and language classroom.
These materials will help increase my students' ability to participate in and benefit from group therapy activities.
My students need a variety of seating options to increase engagement during structured activities like Circle Time and Story Time. Some of my more active students will benefit from Hokki stools and wobble cushions so they can keep moving! Others will benefit from cube chairs to help keep them contained and remind them to respect personal space. My students also need a designated Calming Corner with a variety of seating options (beanbag chair, soft seats), fidget toys, board books, and dolls. They will use these materials to help with expressing their emotions and calming themselves down so they are able to return to the group activity as soon as possible.
