Mrs. Wisneski from De Pere WI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Active Kiddos

Help me give my students flexible seating options by providing them with wobble stools which would allow them to learn their best by using their muscles along with their brain!

My Students

I have a very curious and ambitious group of 3rd graders that love to explore and learn new things. They approach each day and every challenge with a great attitude and the willingness to try out new things.

In this classroom we exist as equal individuals and strive to build a community of acceptance that builds each other up.

We love to learn from each other and share our life experiences.

3rd grade is year that brings on many changes for the students. They are learning many new concepts in math and language arts. Students are no longer learning "how" to read and instead looking deeper into the text and working on meaning and comprehension.

My Project

In my classroom, I implement brain breaks, interactive learning and movement to help keep my students focused. Students who have attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity issues especially struggle to stay focused throughout the day. Wobble stools will be used at students' seats in place of a traditional classroom chair. I have borrowed a "wobble stool" from a coworker and saw firsthand the noticeable difference in my students' engagement and attention.

Students are able to "wobble" and get the sensory input or output they need, while remaining on task and working.

Many of my students need to be in motion to concentrate. Engaging their body helps them better retain information and work out cognitive problems. It's recently been shown that kids with ADHD actually learn better while they're moving. I personally believe that this also applies to all kinesthetic learners. The base of the wobble stools are rounded, allowing the student to wiggle and fidget without the stool tipping over. I would like to introduce wobble stools in my classroom to provide flexible seating options for my students, that would allow them to maintain attention and focus.

Thank you for your help! I am excited to provide my students with tools to help them become more successful!
