Self-Regulation Toolbox in Need of Repairs!

Help me give my students Lap Desks and Comfy Floor Seats for their self-regulation tool boxes!

My Students

My students attend a Title I school in an urban Alaska. My students are learning tools to help support self-control and increase self-esteem. The majority of my students are in third grade, but I work with groups of students between kindergarten and third grade. Students come to my classroom for academic and/ or behavioral interventions based on identified needs in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or as part of the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS).

My students are learning how to improve self-regulation with The Zones of Regulation curriculum this year.

This program has helped them become more aware of how their actions and emotions can impact the people around them at school, at home and in the community. When they are in my classroom, they have access to a standing desk, bike peddlers and some alternative seating options. I am proud of their progress and how they use the tools available in my classroom. I would like to provide them with additional tools to manage self-regulation during instructional time.

My Project

My students have been learning about different self-regulation tools and strategies this year. All of my students have been taught that a tool used to successfully support one student may actually become a toy (distracter) for another student. My students have had the opportunity try several different tools to determine what best meets their individual needs.

Some of the most effective tools my students use are flexible seats.

My classroom is in need of more options in our seating options because they have proven to be effective for my students; I don’t currently have enough of the right options available for my students.

I am requesting Lap Desks and Comfy Floor Seats to be used by my students who prefer sitting on the floor. I have several students who do well self-regulating with this type of seating arrangement.

Your donation will help more of my students gain access to preferred seating during instructional time.

Thank you for your interest in my project!
