Mrs. Lam from Mary Esther FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students Abiilitations cozy shade light filters, Gaiam kid balance ball chair replacements, and Spot On carpet markers.
My little first graders are my rays of sunshine.
Their enthusiasm for learning is so contagious.
They always have a thirst for learning. They are full of excitement as they enter the door with curiosity gleaming, wanting to know what the academic day has in store.
Our school is located near two major Air Force Bases in Northwest Florida. It is a Title I school, which means over half of our school is on free and reduced lunch. Fifty percent of the children in my class have one or both parents serving in the military, which means that one or both of their parents may be deployed for an extended time throughout the year. This will leave the children to be transient with their extended families. They just pick up wherever they are and continue to grow academically, mentally, and physically. These children are so resilient. They sacrifice so much for our freedom.
On behalf of my scholars, I am requesting some carpet spots and balance balls to add to our flexible seating. My scholars enjoy having flexible seatings. It allows them to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. The balance balls and floor spots will give them the seating options to promote an effective and productive environment.
We are also requesting light filters to reduce the flicker and glare from fluorescent lights, which is helpful in reducing, if not eliminating, the headaches, migraines, and eye strain caused by the lights.
Studies show that kids in classrooms with softer lighting are calmer and able to focus more in class. The reduced flicker and softer lighting is especially beneficial to students with special needs, such as autism, ADHD and sensory processing disorders.
