Ms. Hornedo from Lake Worth FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Mindful Mats to the Rescue

Help me give my students mindful mats. This will help us social distance while in class. My students will use these items during all subjects for both small group and individual flexible seating for my students with exceptionalities.

My Students

My students are lively, confident children. They are mostly ESE and ELL students. The community the school is located in is a very needy area. Although not far from an affluent area, it lacks all the benefits from it.

The students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.

The school is a Title I school. Students attend this school from nursery through high school. The students are constantly in need of supplies. The financial needs of their families are so great that, at times, it is impossible for them to bring them to school.

My Project

I am asking for help in obtaining mindful mats for my students. With continuous issues concerning Covid and variants, I must always look for ways to promote distancing and socialization in unison. These mats will help us maintain social distancing for health and safety reasons as well as help us grow as a class community promoting socialization with exceptions. Students will also use these mats for flexible seating arrangements during all subjects. With the diverse needs of my students, I have to make sure I have the necessary materials to meet their needs and accommodate. They will use them in all subjects for both small groups and individual needs.
