Ms. Magee from Antelope CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Seating For Creative Minds

My students need Amazon Kindle tablets for part of their positive rewards that they can use while sitting in bean bags when it has been earned. A classroom with alternative seating options will help reduce behaviors.

My Students

My students are from districts that have not been able to meet their emotional needs in the classroom. They get referred to my site because of disruptive behaviors at school. In my class, we work on a positive reward and point based system. The goal of my classroom is to get the students on the right track through emotional support and behavior intervention plans to go back to the general education setting.

As a smaller class, we get the opportunity for group learning, project based learning, and class trips.

All of these opportunities allow the students to interact with classmates and adults appropriately, preparing them to transition back to general education. My students are extremely smart and gifted and have a wonderful ability to think outside the box. Alternative learning to grab their attention and interest is key to making them successful in the classroom

My Project

Flexible seating such as wiggle seats and feet bands will allow my students to expend their energy while paying attention to lessons. These items will also help prevent my students from inappropriately getting out of their seats during a lesson. The noise cancelling head phones will help students block out behaviors happening around them so that they can focus on their individual tasks.

The bean bags and Kindle Fires will serve as part of our positive reward system in class.

This will be part of a safe space where the students can relax and enjoy earned time on a tablet.
