Mrs. Guillerault from Portland ME is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Alternative Seating Options for Wiggly Students

Help me give my students tools to be successful in the classroom. Alternative seating choices like a stability ball or a wobble cushion help students who typically need a motor break stay in the classroom for longer periods.

My Students

Diversity is a word that you hear often in our school. You hear about what a gift our diverse population is and the lessons we are learning from each other.

Diversity in a classroom helps students think more globally, learn to accept others' ideas, and to challenge each other's thinking.

We have students from all walks of life, different countries of origin, different family structures, and different socioeconomic status. Our school serves free or reduced rate lunch to about half of our student body.

With this diverse group of students, we have a diverse set of needs in the classroom.

My Project

Middle School-age children need to move! Some of my students ask to take walking breaks during class. These students need to get their wiggles out that they are unable to do so in my standard classroom chairs. When they are self-regulating (which I am proud of them for recognizing!) in the hallway they are missing valuable classroom experiences like working with their peers, hearing others' ideas and missing instruction. These alternative seating choices will give students an outlet for their need to move while still being present in the classroom. They will be able to move and participate productively at the same time!
