Ms. J. from Altoona IA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle Wobble! It's Fun to Learn!

My students need flexible seating options in the classroom to aid them in their learning due to their unique disabilities. The SitWell Adjustable Stools will help them concentrate during group instruction by allowing them wiggle room!

My Students

I have six amazing and exceptional students. Each unique in their own way with specific talents and each with disabilities. My students are loving children that tend to have behavior difficulties as a result of their disability (Autism, Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disabilities). They are lovable and bright in their own way. They learn differently and at a slower pace than their typical peers, which requires a special learning environment, but boy do they learn!

These unique students thrive on structure!

My goal is to be the best teacher and advocate I can be for my students. To do that, I need to make sure that they have all the "tools in their toolbox" that they need to be successful! Thank you for your support!

My Project

My students thrive on a structured learning environment. They really need flexible seating in their classroom environment to be successful in their learning. My classroom has hard laminate flooring. The Kid Carpet On The Spot Classroom Seating Nylon Area Rug and ECR4Kids SoftZone Floor Cushions with Handles will be great for them to sit on during social play and communication instruction. The ECR4Kids SitWell Adjustable Stools, Fidget Kick Bouncy Chair Bands, and Yes4All Balance Pods Hedgehog Balancing Pods seating options will give them some flexiblity to move while they learn as many of them struggle with attention deficits. These seating options will help them focus during group instruction, 1:1 instruction, and independent work as they will be easy to move around the room!
