Energetic Kids Need a Wobble Chair

My students need alternative seating. They need the wobble chairs because it makes sitting an activity. They don't have to sit still while sitting. It is perfect for students with more energy.

My Students

My students are amazing kiddos. They have a lot of energy and love to learn new things. I realized that many of my students have a difficult time sitting in a chair. Many of my students tend to tip in their chair and often times tip over.

I am ready to roll out student work spaces instead of traditional tables and chairs.

A few of my colleagues have benefited from offering different types of work spaces. By introducing work spaces at the rug, sitting on a yoga ball, or other alternative seating, their students have able to focus on a task for a longer period of time.

My Project

The Wobble chair is a perfect fit for my active Kindergarten classroom. The wobble chair is made so it can't tip over.

Aggressive wobbling on a Wobble Chair increases blood to the brain.

Kids learn better and are more productive if they are able to wobble & wiggle while they learn. I have many students with ADHD. They often have a difficult time "sitting still."

I often hear the bang of a child accidentally tipping over in his or her chair. This chair will be the perfect solution for my active students. This chair provides an outlet for restlessness and extra energy. The kids get to keep active while seated. My students will be more engaged learners if they have a comfy and wiggly place to sit in class.
