Ms. Stanley from Bridgeport CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Love To Learn But We Are Easily Distracted!

Help me give my students a less distracting learning space. My students have disabilities including autism and ADHD, and they struggle to focus and learn. With a flexible, sound-absorbing divider, students will have a quiet space to work.

My Students

Our classroom mission is to create a place where students feel safe, supported, brave and able to experiment and learn. Each student has struggled in general education, even with supports in place. Their abilities are many, but they also have disabilities that need to be addressed so that they can learn, remember and generalize skills.

My fourth and fifth grade students are a lovable bunch, full of wonder, curiosity, and fun.

They are learning to work and play together, while also learning to speak, share, read, write and use mathematics. They have learning and social - communication challenges that impact their learning, and they all want very much to be successful.

My Project

As my students work at different levels and have unique needs and challenges, we often work in small groups. However, all of my students are very easily distracted. A door opening, talking, a change in another student's position, can draw them away from their work and make engagement and retention much more difficult.

My students' challenges include difficulty with staying on task, remembering and learning.

Even small noises in the classroom disrupt their learning.

The flexible divider will enable us to work in small groups within the classroom and also enable students to work independently. Having the ability to easily roll the divider, move it as needed, and shape it according to our diverse and changing needs make it ideal for our classroom.
