Ms. Floyd from Lexington KY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need Flex Space Comfy Floor Seats to use during free play and small group time.
As a teacher of students in low income/single-parent family homes, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. The students in my classroom are students with learning and emotional disabilities.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.
Many are students with a range of disabilities, emotional disturbance, and specific learning disabilities. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may deprive them of life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My kids love to learn but they sometimes have a hard time sitting still. These chairs will allow them to sit in a chair while rocking slightly so they an better focus on what they are working on. If kids can move their bodies more, their minds open up. While they are reading, focusing on a complex math problem, or working on anything else they are learning the research shows that kids who take more control of their seating to a situation that works best for them will engage their minds for longer periods of time and retain more.
My students are energized to learn about their community and the world around them.
I am eager to provide them with what they need to make connections about the world and move them forward in their educational endeavors.
