Ms. Fillette from Smyrna DE is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Guide Sensory Learning in an Inner City School!

My students need sensory therapy materials, flexible seating, technology to aid in learning, and books to let them know they are capable of anything they put their minds to!

My Students

My students range from age 5 to 11 years old in a self-contained K-5 classroom in inner city Wilmington. Most our students come from low income homes and they do not always get what they need. I want to help them learn while providing them with what they need and lots of love. They are embracing the power of *yet* and striving to meet all of their IEP goals. Each student is energetic and ready to learn in their own way. While our classroom is large, it is not furnished in a way that will help my students grow and enjoy school. There is also a lack of technology and sensory materials to help guide them in their learning.

My Project

My students have a wide array of special needs, most of which deal with attention to task and sensory needs. They also come from a rough part of town where their needs are not always met. These materials will help them focus on their school work and build their self confidence! I want to grow their growth mindset with the help of flexible seating, simple technology, a safe, and books that let them know they are capable of making their dreams come true. The wobble chairs and cushions will provide my students with a way to focus their energy so that they can stay on task. The balance beam with help my students work on their gross motor skills and help students calm down when upset. The books help with social-emotional learning in the classroom. Each student should learn in their own way and in a comfortable classroom. That is my hope for these materials! I want my students to love coming to school while feeling safe at all times.
