Mrs. Lucas from Houtzdale PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Achievers

My students need alternative seating to allow for more movement and space in a small classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

According to George Evans, "Every student can learn just not on the same day or in the same way." My first grade students live in a rural community. Student enter school from many diverse backgrounds and abilities.

All students at this young age are full of energy and eager to learn about math, reading, writing, and the world around them.

Each student has high hopes of being successful in an environment that is warm and relaxing.

This is an inclusive classroom with several students having specific needs. Of the students that I teach, 9 receive remedial reading, 1 has a learning disability, 1 is emotional support, and 4 students have been diagnosed with attention disorders.

My Project

These items will be used to provide alternative seating to my first grade students. Ridding the room of desks and chairs will create more space. The table can be lowered so that students may use cushions to sit on the floor. Stools will be used at a few desks instead of chairs. Seat cushions allow for movement if students need or select chairs.

Alternative seating provides sensory modulation.

This sensory stimulation plays a role in learning and improving academic achievement by allowing use of all senses. Student motivation and engagement improve. Extra energy is spent allowing students movement.

These items will provide alternative seating for students throughout the classroom. I hope to see students more engaged and a decrease in behavioral issues.
