Ms. Lauren from Norwalk CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

LEAPing Back to School!

Help me give my students materials for the classroom such as, flex seating benches for around the room, bins to organize their independent workstation, and a carpet for us to sit together!

My Project

Help me create a special space for my students this year! LEAP is a self-contained classroom for students with moderate to severe disabilities. Our room needs some serious TLC! We will use the benches and rug for meeting as a class (of 6), bins to put independent work in, and learning materials to make work time fun! My students love sensory items (slime) and art too!

Our room is missing many items that could provide our kids with the best school year possible.

Please help me make that happen! Thank you!
