Mrs. Michaud from Lowell MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Little Wiggle Worms

My students need Wobble Chairs for our small group instruction. The children will be able to wiggle while learning, which will help to keep their minds focused.

My Students

"I am inspired!" These are words my students use when looking at illustrations, science experiments, and the work of other children. The children want to be artists, illustrators, scientists, teachers (really anything you can think of). Working in a low income district, my students face challenges both in and outside of the classroom. Many of them do not have toys and games to play with at home.

Watching the students engage with these materials for the first time is amazing.

I try to help my students be as engaged as possible. By inviting the children to explore materials and use hands-on activities, allowing them to learn new things and express themselves.

Our school is for students K-4, servicing over 590 children a year. There are over 10 languages spoken in our school. The children in my classroom come from a variety of backgrounds and each has a different experience they bring with them. Giving all children the opportunity to have a voice and feel important, no matter what medium they use, is extremely important to me.

My Project

This year I am working with a population of students who are in constant motion. Our classroom is filled with children on IEPs who require frequent movement breaks. The chairs we currently have in our classroom are too large and they do not allow for safe movement. These new chairs will allow us to strengthen our core, while keeping our learning on track.

A little wiggles goes a long way to keeping our minds focused.

My students spend almost all day with me with exception of one switch to specials. These Wobble chairs would lessen the tipping in their chairs and the need to get up due to it not being comfortable. These seats will allow children to choose the seat in the classroom that works best for them.
