Mrs. Calvani from Billerica MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Focusing

My students need Softzone gaming chairs, portable lap desks, bouncy bands, a bean bag, and exercise balls and stands to help them focus.

My Students

I teach in a L.A.B (Learning Applied Behavior) school. The majority of my students are regular education students with a handful that are within the inclusive classroom. These students have the option of leaving my classroom and taking breaks in the LAB room. I would love the opportunity to limit their need for removal by providing flexible seating to meet their needs as well as any child's needs in my classroom. My students want to learn and be a part of their peers.

My Project

The supplies that I am requesting will be used on a daily basis. Students will be able to come in and request a specific spot to work at that day. This allows the child to understand how they work best so that they can focus on their academics. The exercise balls and bases will be used instead of chairs at students desks. The ECR4Kids gaming chairs and portable lap desks will be used as alternatives to traditional desks for my active students. The large bean bag will be placed in an area with curtains for a safe outlet for these children.

My hope is to develop not only a trauma sensitive classroom but an atmosphere that will help to improve and increase student attention and focus.
