Ms. Ducoing from Rochester Hills MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Specialized Seating for Successful Students

Help me give my students flexible seating options! This includes wobble chairs to get their wiggles out, as well as exercise and stability balls for both seating and gross motor exercises when they just need a break.

My Students

I am lucky to work with 41 incredible students in the resource room setting at the elementary level with two co-workers and amazing paraeducators. My students all have Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and require different levels of interventions to be as successful as possible in their general education classrooms. Many of my students need assistance with academics, medical, behavioral, and social issues.

Our goal this year has been to create a warm, safe and trusting environment for all 41 of our students.

Whenever a child needs a little bit of extra help, love or attention, we know they are comfortable coming to the resource room. All of my students put forth their greatest efforts and truly realize their fullest potential while in this room.

My Project

Many of my students have difficulty remaining focused and attentive for long periods of time. This is often due to medical diagnoses, but more often is due to the fact that sometimes learning is just very challenging for them. When things get tough, students are typically more off task, which includes moving around. Having flexible seating is proven to help with getting rid of some of those distractions! Students are more successful when they are allowed to move around as they are working.

Allowing my students to make choices with their seating, as well as to allow movement while working, encourages student success and student growth in the classroom.
