Mrs. Collins from Akron OH is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Seating for Active Students

My students need wobble stools to help them have active seating. Increased movement while sitting helps with muscle tone and engagement.

My Students

I love what I do! Every day brings a new adventure. I teach at an urban school that is bursting at the seams. We have over 600 students in a building that was made for 400. Nearly all of our students eat breakfast and lunch at school. This is most likely because 100% of them are living in poverty.

We have students from 29 countries speaking 18 different languages.

About 35% of our students come from homes where English is spoken. That means the other 65% hear English only at school. This doesn't mean that English is the only language you will hear in our halls. It a wonderful experience to be a part of such great diversity.

Our school has become its own global community. Children coming from such poor and disadvantaged circumstances still wake up ready for success. They come to school with smiles on their faces ready to learn. Their growth is measurable is so many ways. I feel fortunate to be a part of this.

My Project

Students coming to my room have intensive needs. They are some of the lowest scoring in our building. This may be due to a disability, a developmental delay, medical conditions, or environmental circumstances.

By being able to bounce, wiggle or rock, their muscles are engaged and so is their brain.

Wobble stools will help them burn off their excess energy in a non-disruptive way. Movement increases oxygen flow and therefore increases brain activity. The end result is often a more engaged learner. If a student is engaged in learning, progress can be made.

By just making a student more bodily engaged, we make them better learners and better citizens.
