Mrs. Hanley from Anchorage AK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need sofas, tents, and pillows for a peace corner for self reflection and peaceful resolution.
"That was the best feeling I've ever had." These words were spoken by a 5th grade student after completing a model of a roller coaster made from only paper and tape. Weeks of hard work and trial and error went into the project. Our program serves over 70 students who have a demonstrated educational need for gifted enrichment. They come from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and work together on projects across all academic areas.
Our program is needs based, so all students who qualify are able to attend.
No one is turned away due to a lack of space or funding. IGNITE students require additional depth and complexity in their educational program. They attend class for 2-3 hours per week and benefit from project-based learning activities.
The IGNITE program serves gifted students in a Montessori environment. Montessori teaches students to self-regulate their emotions through the use of a peace corner. Peace corners allow students free access to a safe space when they are feeling sad, angry, overwhelmed, or just need space to themselves.
The pop up tent, mermaid pillows, orthopedic bed, and squishy balls will combine to provide a private space with tactile stimulation where students can go to self reflect and decompress.
These items will contribute to our classroom environment by helping students develop their social emotional skills and be able to identify when their emotions require self-regulating.
