Mrs. Hansman from Denison IA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Lounge Around!

My students need some new furniture for their reward time! My students earn reward time after their work completion and our current bean bags and pillows aren't looking so good anymore.

My Students

I teach in a school filled with wonderful students and teacher's who want to inspire and educate all of the student's. I am the behavior special education teacher for K-5th grade. I currently have 1st-4th grade with six students who are with me all day; along with seven other students who come to visit me for 20-45 minutes a day.

Our school is around 80% free and reduced price lunch.

The majority of my students come from a single parent family. All of my students are in my room due to their behaviors. Their behaviors prevent them from being in a general education classroom. I also have two full time associates who assist the 6 students throughout the day.

My student's are amazing individuals who are capable of incredible things. The student's require a variety of items, materials, tools and ideas to keep them motivated and engaged in their learning. My students spend a lot of time in my classroom and can become bored with the materials we have available. New and exciting is always a fun way to start a lesson!

My Project

My students earn reward time, or what we call their "A List" time after their work completion. We currently have a fort, that the students built out of pvc pipe, working as a team! In the fort, they have pillows, bean bags and blankets that they get to lay on while they use their electronic devices (I-Pad or Chromebook). Their current bean bags and pillows have been well "loved" and are in need of replacement.

My students work hard to earn their "A List" and deserve a comfy place to lounge around on!

The new bean bags and pillows will be a good motivator for them, as they will want to sit and lay on them while on their Chromebook or I-Pad.

A lot of my students have a lot of energy and sometimes have "ants in their pants". The wiggle seats will be a great way for my students to be able to wiggle appropriately while still listening to my instruction. It will be a good way to combine both worlds!
