Donors Choose is an amazing website for educators that lets them post proposals that need funding and allows people to donate to that project. You can donate any amount, and the money goes straight to Donors Choose, who fund the project through vendors and ships whatever you requested straight to your school!

I recently created a proposal for my classroom requesting a bean bag chair and a physio-ball for my students in our library area. My students with mild to severe autism are constantly stimulating themselves, often in the form of rocking or bouncing. A bean bag chair would help to encourage independent reading and rest time, and the physio-ball will allow them to bounce and rock in an effective way.
We have a small (and I mean small) rocking chair in our room and the kids always fight over who gets to use it. They love to sit in it and rock back and forth, back and forth. So I'm hoping that the physio-ball will give them some other options.
Soooo my dear family, friends, and other blog readers, here's my proposal. I hate asking for things (very stubborn), but when it comes to my students, I'll ask for anything. Seriously, any amount of money is appreciated, even if it's just $5.
PS: I survived my first week! And got a compliment from an administrator! And a student threw a toy out of the 4th floor window! (Gotta take the good with the bad I guess....)
Have a great weekend everyone!
