Mrs. Lubken from Anchorage AK is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for my Amazing Students

My students need wobble chairs to allow for extra movement while learning.

  • $520 goal

This project expired on December 10, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is located on the east side of Anchorage. Many of my students come from low-income homes and are on free and reduced meals. My school is populated with many different ethnic groups that bring to our school many cultures and traditions. My school is an inclusive school which means that students with special education needs receive most of their education with their general education peers. This allows for the students to access teaching material

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to have the opportunity to choose an alternative chair if needed that works best for them to learn. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They are able to wiggle or bounce to help them stay focus and learn.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to sit.

The product that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble chairs are extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed!

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that this additional option will help us grow even more!
