Ms. Cumbie from Santa Rosa CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need flexible seating options including bean bag seats, stack stools, and wobble stools, to boost productivity and increase focus!
We are a diverse group, with languages being spoken from around the globe, but that's part of what makes us so great! Over 90% of my first-grade students come from low-income households. Ninety-eight percent are English Learners, and many have special needs such as ADHD, speech disorders, and autism. In October of 2017, our city was devastated by wildfires, causing our school to close for nearly 3 weeks. Myself and a few of my students were forced to evacuate. Now, more than ever, my students need support to help close the gaps left from 3 weeks without school.
Coming from a low-income household, having special needs, learning English as a second language...not easy to do!
However, my students are excited to be in school and seize every moment to learn all they can.
What I love most about my students is the heart they put into learning as well as caring for each other, despite the uncertainties many face at home.
Let's face it-first graders can be WIGGLY! My classroom is in need of some flexible seating items to help with excess energy while allowing students to be comfortable and productive. I am requesting the following items: 2 large bean bag chairs, which are perfect for independent reading and writing with a clipboard, 2 wobble chairs for students with special needs, and 5 plastic stacking stools to be used for small group instruction.
Flexible seating in the 21st century is the way to go!
These exciting options will create an enjoyable learning environment that is customizable to each students' needs, whether it be ADHD, autism, or just in need of a different seating option to focus. Plus, a variety of seating options creates a warm, welcoming environment that is so needed for my students to succeed!
