Ms. Borden from Troy NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sensory Seating

Help me give my students tools for success! The wobble cushions will help students focus. The sensory mats will help those students who need a break and find comfort with sensory items.

My Students

I teach Pre-K through 2nd grade Art Education. I have been teaching art from a cart for two years. My students and I just received a new art room! Starting an art room from scratch should be fun, but help is needed! My students are from a diverse community which is a low-income/high poverty school district. Many students have never used markers, scissors, glue or paint before they come to school. Needless to say, these students are excited and eager to be able to use art materials.

Teaching Pre-K through 2nd allows me to share my creativity and passion for art while introducing these students to art materials.

Each one of my students loves exploring and experimenting with new materials. "Creativity is contagious, pass it on."- Albert Einstein. Creating a beautiful, colorful and creative space for my students to create art is my goal.

My Project

Students often times need alternative seating while working. The wobble cushions will help students focus. The sensory mats will help those students who need a break and find comfort with sensory items. I teach three self contained classrooms who would greatly benefit from movement breaks.

Students will learn organizational skills and make transitions from class to class easier with the color coordinated table caddies.

Students will become more organized with their supplies at their tables. Students will be able to quickly find their tables folders and continue working on previous projects with the teacher's organizer. I know that the students will appreciate the new additions to the art room!
