Ms. Cassie from Saint Paul MN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Self-Regulation Tools

My students need several ways to help regulate their bodies physically, mentally and emotionally. My students need timers and wobble cushions.

My Students

Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds with more than half of our students receiving free and reduced lunch. Currently, there are more than five different languages spoken in my class other than English. We have a variety of needs. I have both four and five year old students in my class. We are in a Montessori Children's House classroom.

The Montessori philosophy encourages students to work at their own pace and at their own level.

They get to explore five different areas in the classroom: culture, practical life, sensorial, math, and language arts.

My Project

The flexible seating options will provide the physical needs/wiggles to assist my students to sit quietly and listen and complete independent work. These materials will not directly teach my students new skills, but they will help prime my students for learning in all content areas and with many daily living skills by staying focused. For example, while students are independently working, if they feel like they cannot stay focused due to excessive movement they can channel that movement in to one of these flexible seating options.

The rock zen garden, Buddha board, and yoga cards can give them an option to clear their mind and regroup to continue to learn the content they chose to work on.

Sometimes students tend to get overwhelmed or emotionally filled and need to take a break. These provide an option to regulate their emotions and mental state.
