Mrs. Graham from Madera CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Sensory Seating

My students need flexible seating options to help with their learning and where they learn best. The Wobble chairs will provide my students with an alternative seating option in their stations and groups.

My Students

My room is extra special because I have students with "super powers" in my classroom. I teach a special day class with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. Each of my students bring something very special and unique to the classroom. In addition, each of them qualifies to be in my classroom based on a variety of disabling conditions which classify them to receive special education services. Not only do all of my students have "super powers" or special needs, but they also come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. This means they may lack emotional, educational, and financial support or stability in their home.

"When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm, and not join in on their chaos." - L.R.

My Project

Learning in my classroom is typically very unique. My classroom is made up of children with special needs, specifically children with autism. Much of our day is spent learning in unique ways, which means typical learning doesn't always mean a chair and desk. Flexible seating in our classroom allows us to accommodate each child's specific needs and engage their learning while they are working.

Sitting like a typical student just make learning more difficult.

My students require a tremendous amount of engagement in learning and also have the choice of how they learn best. This may be working as a group, with a partner, or independently. Wobble chairs and bean bags will give our classroom the options our students require.
