Mrs. Sanzone from Waterbury CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students flexible seating and fidget toys to help students with ADHD and other sensory needs succeed.
My students are energetic, eager to learn, and fun-loving. Despite some tough situations some of my students face at home, they come in everyday really giving it their all. Coming from an urban district and a Title I school, unfortunately my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts.
The need for imagination, as a sense of truth, and as a feeling of responsibility — these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education.
- Rudolf Steiner
For this reason, I work extra hard to raise money for supplies that will be used by my students. These supplies benefit my students in so many ways, and it also teaches them a deeper lesson of how good the world can be. Over the years when I have told my students that we have gotten a project funded and we were getting supplies, the looks on their faces were priceless. My students are so appreciative, and donations from kind-hearted people really impact their lives in such a major way!
Some students in our room require movement in order to be able to concentrate. These CanDo Donut Ball, Wobble Cushions, and Bouncy Bands for Chairs will help students get the sensory input needed so their brains will be regulated and optimal learning can take place. The stretchy string fidgets and fidget toys will also help students focus and learn.
Students with ADHD and other sensory needs need movement to stay motivated.
The students are given a short recess before lunch, but this is not enough time to get the exercise they need throughout the day. When students are able to move, studies have shown that physiological stimulation leads to increased attention. Enhanced attention will lead to higher student engagement.
Please consider helping our class attain these items to help students in our classroom.
