Mrs. Cunningham from Rotonda West FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Flexible Learning!

Help me give my students flexible seating to develop their focus as these premium wobble chairs will allow movement and sensory input, engaging them in their learning.

My Students

My prekindergarten students are four and five years old, diagnosed with a disability. These disabilities include developmental delays, language delays, autism spectrum disorder and many others. They will all be moving onto some type of kindergarten next year. The group has a variety of personalities just like every other class. Some are born leaders, some love to help others and some are physically active.

I don't see my students as disabled, I see them as kids first who might do things a little differently.

They like to interact with each other and the adults around them. They enjoy exploring the world around them. Some need additional support emotionally, academically or physically. My classroom is noisy and exuberant while exploring science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Learning is collaborative; kids work closely together in a hands-on way to solve real-world problems.

My Project

My children have all been diagnosed with a disability and often this includes a need for movement. I keep our activities short and varied but sometimes that isn't enough. These materials will help my students focus.

The flexible seating in this project was chosen for the variety of needs presented by my students.

Some need more movement, some need more structured seating and some need their spot defined. More movement will be provided by the stools allowing the children to wiggle and wobble which will provide input to their sensory systems. The beanbags will provide structure to the children who struggle to maintain their space on a wide open carpet. The seating circles will delineate the space for the children who need a defined spot. These also provide smaller amounts of movement.
