Ms. Southall from Manteno IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating and Fidgets for Miss S's Classroom

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students in this room range from ages 6-10 and the classroom serves students with a range of disabilities, but is specifically designed to accommodate those with behavioral needs. It is important that each of these students gets the best education possible and can have each of their diverse needs met.

My classroom specifically benefits students with emotional and behavioral needs.

There are staff and supports present so that they can meet their academic needs, while getting the social-emotional support that they require. This classroom setting provides students with social-emotional learning lessons and structured breaks so that they can learn how to handle their emotions and behavior inside the general education classroom.

My Project

My classroom specifically benefits students with behavioral and emotional disabilities. These students often struggle with regulating their behaviors in the classroom or staying attentive to the task at hand. These fidgets can help them calm down in a time of crisis as well as stay focused while learning.

Flexible seating is a way to empower students by giving them choices in their everyday learning experience, improve their ability to retain information and focus by providing them with sensory input, and give them a comfortable learning space.

With wobble stools, yoga balls and other seating options, I hope to create an even more comfortable and communal learning space for my students.
