These wobble stools will make a huge difference in my students day to day learning in the classroom. I am a strong believer in the importance and impact of a warm, welcoming, and comfortable classroom. These wobble stools will help create that comfortable space that my students deserve. I want to prepare my students for the dynamic world ahead of them, a world of choices and options. Flexible seating provides them just that. The option for each child to think about his/her own needs and preferences, and choose a seating arrangement that will help them thrive and succeed. The donations for this project will improve my classroom by providing the appropriate stimulation that my students need so that they are able to stay focused and engaged while learning. The wobble stools will be placed in many different places around my classroom. Since they are portable, the possibilities are endless. A child could move a stool to be around the STEM table in my classroom. This is a spot for hands-on learning, creating, and the inquiry process. The stools would provide the movement my diverse students need, thus keeping them more engaged. A child may choose the stool to sit on in the reading nook, while enjoying their favorite book. It can easily be moved to the guided table for a child who needs a little wiggle to maintain their focus during a guided reading lesson on text structure. During math, the wobble stool may be on the large front learning carpet, while children work in small collaborative groups on comparing and ordering decimals to the thousandths place. I envision these flexible seating options being available to students all day, every day in an effort to increase motivation, engagement, and learning!
