Ms. Frost from Skowhegan ME is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Differentiated Learning

My students need Magna-tiles, Gel-E-Seats and one Coredisk Beanbag chair.

  • $512 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

From the very moment many of my students are asked to sit down, they are wiggling in their seats, sitting on their feet, etc. My students are seeking hands on learning materials that will enhance our classroom community, as well as aide children's individual learning needs within the classroom.

My classroom is comprised of 16 students in a Title I school.

All students in our school district receive free breakfast and lunch. For many students in my classroom, school has become his or her safe haven. My students are a very active, young group of first graders that have changed the way I teach. This group of children require more hands on learning, more movement within a day, and more freedom to move within his or her own space. My students are hard workers that need accommodations to further enrich his or her own learning style's.

My Project

The given materials will help my students in a variety of ways. While the Coredisk sensory seats will directly help three students, the seats will actually help our entire class. The students that will access these sensory seats on a regular basis will be able to focus on his or her work. This will provide a quieter learning environment for all students. The Magna-Tiles will help all students in my classroom in a variety of ways. Students will share the Magna-Tiles, collaborate together to create plans for building, take turns, building communication skills, and learning about mathematical concepts.

This project will enhance my classroom environment by allowing children to focus on his or her learning.

These Coredisk sensory seats will help provide focus and raise stamina for my students with attention difficulties. The Magna-Tiles will provide an activity for my students to learn not only math, but my students will also engage in positive social interactions through communication and community building within the classroom.
