Mrs. Coffman from Robesonia PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Students, Everyday, and in Every Way.

My students need flexible seating and fidgets to help relieve stress, anxiety, and to remain focused. We would like to use fake money to motivate and reward our students, while teaching essential life skills of money.

My Students

Not only am I a first year teacher, but my Autistic Support classroom is brand new to to my middle school. I have confidence in my classroom, my students, and my community. I am positive that we will have a great school year. I have not met my students yet, but I have read a lot about them and have received input from their previous teachers, as well as their parents. My students need somewhere to relieve stress and anxiety, as well as certain items to self stimulate and release energy, or a place to simply be themselves. I have a full time paraprofessional, who is nothing shy of amazing. We are hoping to get these flexible seating options and fidget tools for our students to use not just in our classroom, but in general education classrooms as well. Our students are spread across 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. All students have different interests, so we are also in need of books, puzzles, and fidget toys, for collaborative projects. On behalf of our students, my paraprofessional, and myself, we would greatly appreciate any support you could lend. Thank you, anything helps.

My Project

The flexible seating options such as the Gaiam Kids Stay-N-Play Children's Balance Ball, can help our students release energy, stress, and help them stay focused while in their general education classroom. The Orbiter Fidget Toy Magnetic Orbit Ball Toy can help students with anxiety, when taught how to use it effectively.

The ETA hand2mind Play Money Bills and Coins Classroom Kit will be used as a reward/motivator while teaching students essential life skills with money.

We believe all these materials could help our students stay motivated, focused, and interacting with their same age peers.

The books I'm requesting are to help build our classroom library that our students can enjoy during brain breaks or during free time that they can read independently. Our goal is to have materials that can help our students success in and out of the classroom. We just want to set up our students up for success.
