Mrs. Ibarra from El Paso TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wobbly and Bouncing Little Children

My students need wobble chairs and balance balls for our new flexible seating classroom this year.

  • $466 goal

This project expired on November 9, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I am currently teaching at a Title I school where our students come in with a diverse and unique background. Each and every one of them brings in a unique story that tells about their love for learning, their family adventures, their struggles as little human beings, and their simplicity of being a kid. My heart fills with joy every day as I see my students come in ready and excited to learn. I am very blessed to call them my students.

My Project

Our first graders are very active and always need to move. As much as we try to find methods to keep them still on the same spot for a minute it just seems impossible. Therefore, with flexible seating being so popular nowadays and with the positive feedback from various teachers, these wobble chairs and balance balls will give our little first graders more choices and control over their environment.

I am confident that the wobble chairs and balance balls will make learning more fun and engaging all at the same time.

I would love to be able to provide my students with a different seating environment that I know would bring success into our classroom.
