Ms. Odell from Glendale CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for ALL!

My students need flexible seating so they are better able to attend to their work and focus during group and peer discussion.

My Students

I teach students with special needs in grades TK-5th. These students spend the majority of their day in the general education setting, but they often need multiple supports, accommodations and modifications to help them be as successful as possible in their learning environment.

These students overcome challenges, both big and small, on a daily basis.

Their disabilities include Autism Spectrum Disorders, specific learning disabilities, attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorders, and intellectual disabilities. These students work very hard to reach their potential. I am grateful to work with such an inspiring group of children.

My Project

The resource I chose is the Wobble Chair Bundle from Lakeshore Learning. If this project is funded, it will allow my students to have an age-appropriate option for flexible seating in their classroom. Many students have difficulty remaining focused and on task for lengthy periods of time. Active movement breaks, while necessary, mean they often miss instruction. These chairs will allow for movement breaks while students remain seated at the same time so that they are able to attend to the lesson for longer periods.

This flexible seating will help students better focus on their assignments and increase participation in their general education classrooms.

Flexible seating can improve students' attention in the classroom in regard to their work, their peers, and their teachers.
