Mrs. DeSimone from Bronx NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mrs. D’s Fun and Loving Classroom

My students need multi-purpose headphones, because many students are distracted easily. Wobble cushions to help keep them on task while working on their assignment.

My Students

My students are 4th and 5th graders who have special needs. Their disabilities range from ODD, ADHD, autism, and speech and language. Many students live in shelters in the South Bronx and they come to school with no school supplies, and they often come hungry. I’m hoping to give them a memorable year, and help them feel loved while they are with me in school. My students are so special and they deserve to have a beautiful classroom. My goal is to make my classroom a more “sensory friendly” atmosphere.

My Project

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement! The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom!
