Ms. Garcia from Chicago IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I can learn when I have my own space!!

Help me give my students their own designated spot on the rug! The flex wobble cushion is amazing to touch and will help our students who have a hard time staying in their space.

My Students

All my students first language is Spanish. 90% of instruction is done in Spanish. The age of my students range from 4-5 year olds. I have 5 boys and 15 girls. I have several students who require extra support and have tremendous need of knowing what is their area in which to sit. Knowing where there place is very reassuring to them.

What I love about my students is their eagerness to learn.

This gets interupted when students start saying he's bothering me, or a student they sit in a way thats uncomfortable for another students. I feel this also will help tremendously with the students who want to keep moving the cushions will help them to focus. Circle time is an important part of the day where students learn to participate in discussions and learn concepts.

My Project

It is important when we have circle time that each student knows his own space. At this time the teacher has to stop when student's are arguing about someone bothering them .

When student's have their own space they know their boundaries and are more likely to stay in their space.

Helping them to concentrate on the learning that is being presented.

The wooble cushions I chose for the students has bumps on them for the students to also get an sensory experience.

just like having your space for your personal things the students will feel pride in having their own place at the rug. It will make them feel like an indiviual within a group.
