My Students

Early learners are inquisitive, sharp and full of wonder! They seek out opportunities to explore with endless "I wonder" moments. Help create opportunity to fund and further their adventures in learning!

Tiny bodies need opportunities to build core muscle strength and feed sensory needs.

You can make a difference by adding these active seating stations in the classroom. These choices in seating will increase core strength, aid students in sensory diet and ensure focus.

Together we can make a difference for these tiny learners.

My Project

By offering students differentiated seating, we can allow them to take control of their comfort during learning. Laptop desks will work to strengthen core muscle strength. Ball chairs with legs allow learners to move gently while focusing on writing, reading and number exploration. Rocker chairs calm students with vestibular sensory needs, encouraging focus during reading times.

These seating choices allow students vestibular and propriorcetory stimulation, enabling many young learners to focus and enjoy learning.

Young learners bodies can be very hungry for these sensory and motor diets. The opportunity to feed their minds and muscles ensures optimal learning and growth!
