Mrs. Flicek from Green Bay WI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Are In the Zone: Classroom Cool Down Zone!

My students need items for our Cool Down Corner like a Safco Ball Chair, Thinking Putty, and Senseez vibrating cushion. This project also includes teacher resource items like Zones of Regulation.

My Students

We are the Bucket Fillers! This means we fill the "buckets" of everyone we are in contact with each and every day. We are kind to all! We spend our days learning and growing together. Each day is an exciting adventure. We are amazing! We are the only STEM-focused elementary school in the area with a specific focus on engineering.

This donation will help provide my students with the materials to help them grow in the areas of STEM.

Our school has over 400 students. We are not a Title I funded school, so we do not receive many of the resources that other schools may have. The average class size is between 25-30 students. We have a strong commitment to excellence and a great parent network. Our staff works together to support our students in any way possible so all students can succeed.

My Project

This project is all about helping my students regulate their emotions.

I will use the Zones of Regulation curriculum to help my students understand their emotional intelligence and how to deal with their feelings.

These teacher books and resources will help me learn more about this. For my students, I have included items that will go in our classroom Cool Down area. This is an area that students go to when they are feeling strong emotions. It will include lots of different tools that they can use to calm down before joining the group again. This project includes a Safco Ball Chair where students will be able to sit on in the Cool Down area, along with Thinking Putty to use while calming down.

If my students can't get their social and emotional learning in control, we can't start to focus on the academics. This is an important project for our classroom.
