Mrs. Kubo from Fort Bragg CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle, Bounce, Rock: Seating Options for Preschoolers

Help me give my students flexible seating options. I have requested 2 different types of chairs and TheraBand to add to standard classroom chairs so my students can participate in class activities while getting sensory input.

My Students

Our preschool is a unique program. We follow an inclusion model, meaning we house both our special education preschool program and our State Preschool in one site. Our preschool education specialist, speech therapist, paraprofessionals, and State Preschool director co-teach to meet the needs of all our students.

All of the students on my caseload receive individualized instruction to assist in their development.

My students range in age from three to five years old, as do their social, cognitive, self-help, communicative and physical abilities. All students receive specialized academic and speech services; some may also receive additional services, depending on their needs. My instruction is individualized for each student to meet their own personal needs. We try to disguise learning as fun, so students view school and learning as a positive thing.

My Project

Many of my students have sensory needs, and as a result sitting in a standard chair or on the carpet can be challenging. Flexible seating options, such as the requested rocking chair, balance ball chair, and TheraBand resistance band added to standard chairs, would provide my students the ability to participate in learning along side their peers while meeting their sensory needs.

These seating options would be dedicated for small and large group activities to promote student engagement.

I have seen how seating options can positively affect my students attending and participation and hope that the additions of these seating options will help students take an active role in their learning.
