Ms. Rolfe from Philadelphia PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My students need adaptive seating options, beanbag chairs, wiggle cushions and bouncy bands for chairs, to help us stay on-task and engaged throughout the day.

My Students

I am a special education teacher working in the Philadelphia School District. My learning support students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade have a variety of academic, physical, and social needs. They are a group of positive and supportive scholars that work hard every day. Their academic abilities range greatly from working on letter sound correspondence to writing multiple paragraphs. Our classroom revolves around differentiation and flexibility. Our classroom needs supplies that will assist with all of the various needs in our room.

My Project

These seating options will help some of our more active students stay seated and engaged throughout the day. Our class transitions a lot within our room, but even with all of the movement that takes place, it can still be tough to sit down and work without wiggling or shuffling our feet. These materials will not only benefit the students using them, but the class as a whole.

My students are focused when all of their needs are met.

For some, meeting their needs can be as simple as a comfortable place to read and for others they need help keeping their bodies still. The bean bag chairs will make our library area a cozy place to enjoy reading. The chair bands will help our feet stay quiet during work time. The seat cushions will assist students in remaining seated and still throughout the day. All of the materials together will help our classroom stay quiet and actively engaged.
