Mrs. Harris from Indianapolis IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a standing desk with fidget bar in order to provide a safe area for movement without causing distractions.
I am a special education teacher who interacts with many students who come from many different backgrounds and have diverse needs. What they do have in common though is that they come to school every day ready to soak up whatever knowledge I can give them.
My students show a great amount of enthusiasm for learning.
They are very interested in learning systems of equations at this time! Their excitement for learning is exhibited daily, as is their support for their peers.
Seeing my students continue to grow in their learning is amazing!
Many of my students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom, which makes their day more stressful. We strive to make school an enjoyable experience where all students feel safe and engaged. As their teacher, I aim to foster their curiosity and love of learning.
While we do our best to talk with and help them, sometimes there are other avenues that can bring a little more peace and comfort to them, which can increase their success rate. Classroom environment can definitely have a calming effect for these situations.
Having flexible seating in my classroom has allowed my students to make choices about what best meets their learning needs. Currently, I have one couch, a few exercise balls, a standing desk, two foot peddlers and three wobble chairs. The reality is that all my students are benefitting. I am a teacher who teams with another teacher for part of my day and there is not much alternative seating in the other room.
I started this project because a student asked me to put a standing desk with a fidget bar like the one I currently have in my own classroom in the other room that we work in because he felt it would be helpful for him.
More options for flexible seating will allow for more communication and better collaboration between students. My hope is that it will help 1 (or more) students bring back a little focus to their day!
I am asking for one standing desk that also has a fidget bar. The desk allows for movement and is perfect for those kids that just need to move without being a distraction.
It's important to change the space in our classrooms to meet the individual needs of students as they emerge. This change will affect how students interact with one another and hopefully better their classroom experience.
