Mrs. Yuhas from Pittsburgh PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Busy Little Learners

My students need wobble chairs and balance balls for some creative and flexible options for seating in our classroom to enhance learning in our ever growing and demanding environments to make it fun and natural!

My Students

Our Pre-K classroom is part of the Pittsburgh Public School District, which is a district that prides itself on the unique differences of the individual students. There is a variety of ethnic, cultural and economic differences that we celebrate and learn from. Each student in our PreK is encouraged to be the best they can be, try the hardest they can and to never give up.

The PreK classroom is one of the greatest places in our building to visit because the students are hard at work and play!!

Our students live to come to school and learn. They are excited and curious about the world around them and we, as educators, hope to continue to encourage their natural love of learning.

My Project

Incorporating wobble chairs and balance ball seats into the classroom can help reduce the constant reminders to sit still and focus. Little learners like to stand and move about so they can explore and be the natural creatures that they are meant to be. Adding options like the wobble chairs and balance ball seats helps to create that sense of sitting and learning, that they need to develop, while letting them move their bodies without really knowing. The wobble chairs take up less space and store nicely under the tables to allow more room for table top learning, where typical chairs get in the way, and they allow the students to move freely as needed. They are also great options for students with special needs, as well, to accommodate many different areas of development.
