My students need flexible sitting options inside the classroom so that their anxieties and frustrations of the day can be released. These items will allow my students to move in a quiet way while they work.
My students are unique and all have something special to offer to this world. Their gifts could vary from a simple smile, to a kind gesture, to an entergetic spirit that is contagious. I work as a Special Education teacher ,and I'm privileged to teach 18 students at an Autauga County Title 1 school. I am confronted each day with different life situations. At times, uncontroable circumstances make learning difficult for my students ,but they choose to show strength despite whatever their struggle might be. Many of my students have sensory needs and if these needs are met they are able to perform better inside the classroom.
These materials will make a difference to my students because they will have seating options available that allow them to move quietly during instructional time. The ability for quiet movement in the classroom will allow my students to be more engaged in the whole group lessons. These flexible seating options will also help with the sensory needs that my students have when they become overstimulated. The movement is needed to help soothe and relax them. This project will also help provide calming options for the cool downs that my students occasionally need. The movement and repetition of the chairs will help my students focus better on their classwork, move in a quite way that meets there sensory need and will not disturb their classmates.
