Ms. H. from Memphis TN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Up Up And Away Learning Through Movement And Play

My Students

The students in my classroom need flexible seating options and sensory break boxes. They need Wobble Chairs, Sit-A-Round Cushions, and Sensory Break Boxes.

My Students

We are a title one school with a mixture of African Americans, Latino and Caucasian. My students are an energetic bunch and they are always on the move. They love learning new things although they all have communication handicaps. Some are non-verbal while others have limited speech. Most are autistic but all have issues with ADHD. They need the flexible seating that allows them to wiggle while they learn. The sensory break boxes are needed to supplement open-ended play and sensory exploration for the students.

My Project

The wobble seat and wiggle cushions will help my students be able to move in their seats while they learn. Instead of running around the room they will wiggle in their seats while completing the class work or reading a book. The students learn classroom behavior and rules in the classroom. My students have learning disabilities and it is a chore to be still. The sensory manipulatives and toys will allow my students to focus. The toy and manipulative are tied to a particular lessons anxiety is reduced and learning is acquired. These tools overall help my student learn to calm and control themselves while in the learning/teaching setting.
