My Students

My classroom consists of 19 ten-year-olds. They are funny, thoughtful, and curious about their world! In my classroom, we discuss, share, question, and create. My students have faced more adversity than some of us will in our lifetime. Every day, I leave inspired by their relentless resiliency.

In order to maximize learning, my students need multiple opportunities to move throughout their day!

My students need a flexible learning environment that supports emotional regulation through a wide range of tools and seating options.

My Project

My students are ten-years-old. With the daunting demands of proficiency based education and standardized testing benchmarks, it is even more imperative to create a classroom community that fosters self-regulation. The Wobble Chairs and Cushions would support our social and emotional learning curriculum (Zones of Regulation), allowing students access to sensory input, learning tools to enhance focus, and provide flexible seating options to benefit a wide range of learners.

With your support, these tools; Putty, Wobble Chairs, and Chair Leg Bands, etc., will maximize engagement, promote skill development, while enhancing student achievement.

Your considerations around the importance of these materials to support social and emotional growth is greatly appreciated!
