Congratulations Ms. W from Miller Elementary School in San Diego. You are the Big Box Storage Teacher of the Month! Surely, it is no easy feat keeping young active minds on task, yet you have forged the path to unlocking the learning potential for your special students. We are your biggest fans and wish to help you get your wiggle chairs.
From the teacher:
“My students need chairs to help with their energy levels and focus skills. My students need wiggle chairs to help them learn.
This project will reach 11 military special needs students who have lots of energy and wiggles. My students range from 5 years old to 8 years old and have a variety of disabilities.
My class is a moderate to severe special needs classroom with all military students.
My students not only have special needs but they are also dealing with having their moms and/or dads being deployed. This causes their little bodies to fidget and have anxiety. These special chairs have been shown in the class to drastically help with behaviors and emotions my students exhibit when a loved one is deployed.
All of my students require specialized academic instruction and have lots of wiggles. They use fidget bands for their feet but they need something extra to help them calm down and focus on learning.
My students have a variety of disabilities that prohibit them from learning. They also struggle with anxiety, ADHD, and ADD which does not allow them to focus on learning. Wiggle chairs helps students calm their bodies and emotions to a state where they are able to concentrate and learn. It allows the students to move as their specific body needs to calm down.
Special needs students need ways to help with their constantly moving bodies to be able to learn.
These chairs are vital for our special population to access the needed modified curriculum to learn. Please be the helping hand that gives my students the needed chairs to learn.”
We applaud your triumphs with the students in your class and would love to donate funds to help purchase your wiggle chairs.. It would be fantastic to see your students getting their wiggles out once their chairs arrive, and share it with the world via our social media outlets. We invite you to submit their photos for all of our fans to become your fans!
