My Students

I am the teacher in a special education classroom where the students benefit from a calming environment with sensory strategies and other modifications. They’re a great group of kids!

Our classroom works optimally when it is set up in a specific way to help the specific individual needs of each of the students in our room.

We're working hard to address each individual and unique need in our room. Our unique elementary students range from 1st grade through 6th grade.

Additionally, our classroom functions best when our students are provided with real hands on projects and put in situations in which they’re experiencing the lesson.

My Project

The kids in my classroom are movers and don't stay focused while using regular classroom seating.

Please help us out by donating to give my students seating that will allow them to wiggle while working!

In summary, we need to ditch our typical classroom chairs and give our students access to seating that safely wobbles and allows movement while maintaining a safe, fun, and effective learning environment. Having this seating will help ENGAGE the students and help them to attend and focus on the lessons for longer periods of time. We appreciate you checking this out and considering the donation.
