Mrs. Buffer from Sullivan MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Unique Seating For Unique Learners!

My students need a Wobble chair to help them focus, while working in small groups, in our co-teaching classroom.

My Students

My kindergarten students attend school in a rural, high poverty, tight-knit community. All of my students have different strengths and challenges that they bring with them into our classroom. I do my best to accentuate their strengths and help them overcome their challenges.

I want to make our classroom as engaging and interactive as I can for each student; so they each meet their full potential and reach their goals!

I want to create experiences in my classroom that students do not have a chance to have elsewhere. Having some new materials and tools will help me make this happen!

My Project

As a kindergarten special education teacher, I am blessed to co-teach in two different regular education classrooms this year! In this environment, we meet with all of our students in small groups for writing, reading, and math every day. This small group time is intensive instruction, differentiated to meet the needs of the students in the group. Wobble seats will help my students focus during small group, allowing them to wiggle, without it being a distraction to others!

A lot is expected of today's kindergarten students.

While my co-teachers and I do try to limit the amount of seat work our students complete each day, some seated work is still needed. Chairs that allow my young students to still wiggle around will not only help them focus, it will decrease distracting behaviors, and strengthen their core muscles!
