Mrs. Hewins from Westfield MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaged Learning in Motion

My students need six K'Motion stools to help them find a balance while sitting during centers and group work.

My Students

I just started my twentieth year of teaching with 22 enthusiastic eight year old students. The third graders brighten my day with their stories and creativity. Their inquisitive minds are curious about learning new skills. They come to school each day ready to take on new academic challenges.

Third graders love to learn new things, but are also full of energy.

We work on building a caring classroom community. I aim to help foster a life-time love for learning. .

My Project

My students need the K'Motion stools to help them focus while seated during small group and center work. The students spend many hours at school in the traditional hard stools that are uncomfortable for learning.

The K'Motion stools will help the students to wobble their way through learning tasks.

Often students rock in a chair out of nervousness and at times to get rid of excess energy. The K'Motion stools will help them to focus while collaborating with others. Your donation will help my classroom have choices for seating that best meets the students need for working out extra energy.
