Mrs. Stine from Boise ID is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students sensory seats, stability balls as chairs, floor desks, and stools!
Our Gifted and Talented Program is unique, as there are two of us that teach and share students throughout the year, and both myself, as well as my teaching partner, are new to this position. We are the program for the southern portion of our school district and we are lucky enough to teach around 100 students a week. They are coming to us from eight schools around the area and only get the experience of our classrooms one day a week. With that limited time, we are striving to build a strong community that they will grow with over the years.
One of our goals is to provide the kids a new home full of enrichment that truly meets their needs when they are with us each week.
Some of them will wiggle, some will need to stand, and some will need to sit on the floor. Each student that is coming into our classrooms has their own needs and we are hoping to meet them with the use of flexible seating.
We are hoping to create a learning environment that fosters a positive space for ALL students.
Our students are coming to us for gifted and talented educational needs, but that doesn't mean they don't have other needs as well.
Being gifted and talented doesn't mean that you can sit still to create an art piece, work on a project, discover differences around the world, solve the next mathematical challenge, or design the latest invention.
It does mean that as a kid you still have other sensory needs that should be met in the classroom.
By offering a variety of seating choices to students, they are given the freedom to learn where they will be most successful. The wobble seats help students move while still working as a team member of our classrooms. Having the flexibility of sitting on the floor with a mobile desk, can offer a place that they feel more comfortable in an active space. Providing stools to students gives them the flexibility of how they sit or even rest a knee that won't hinder their learning.
Allowing them the options in our classrooms, is an amazing step in creating a child centered learning environment that will result in success!
