My students need chair socks, balance balls and Bouncy Bands as flexible seating options to increase focus and limit distractions.
I teach the most amazing, resourceful and resilient bunch of first graders! Here in our town, the achievement gap has hit hard. I teach in one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Connecticut. All of my students are performing under grade level due to varied socioeconomic reasons. Our surrounding suburbs are some of the richest in the world and my students are missing out!
In my school, basic necessities for school such as books, pencils and paper are not guaranteed.
Often times students will not complete their homework because they don't have any pencils, pens, or crayons at home. Most of my students do not even have their own books at home and only have access to a few books in school.
Despite all of this, my students are enthusiastic about school and learning.
My students need flexible seating options for increase attention in class. I am requesting 3 yoga balance balls with legs for my students with extreme attention problems. I am also requesting chair socks so that students will limit noise and distraction when they get up from their seats. Finally, I am requesting chair bands which help my fidgety kids to focus while also getting out some of their energy.
These flexible seating options will increase time I can spend on instruction instead of redirecting distractions.
This is another way to differentiate for students who struggle to pay attention in class either due to ADHD or constant distractions. Please help us create a quieter and more productive classroom!
