Mrs. Ferraro from Katy TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Fabulous Minds

My students need flexible seating options such as these wobble chairs to help them channel their energy in a non-disruptive and positive way!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach 4th grade Math, Science, and Social Studies at a Title 1 school in Katy, TX. We serve a minority population, comprised predominantly of at-risk students.

My classroom includes students with general-education needs, learning disabilities, at-risk students, monitored students in the English Language Learners program, and students still recovering from all the losses caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Needless to say, the classroom environment and climate that I provide for my students is critical to their success and overall well-being.

My Project

It is already challenging enough for 9- to 10-year-olds to be expected to remain seated and silent for about 7 hours a day. Couple that with their personal challenges, and it's a recipe for disaster in the classroom. Most of my students need a physical outlet in order to be able to move their bodies in non-disruptive ways that allow them to focus and stay on task.

The wobble chairs used will offer my students a healthy physical outlet that supports student engagement, focus, and motivation; and diminish the discomforts of a hard plastic chair or floor.

Ever tried to teach a class with kiddos rolling around the floor or constantly getting out of their seats? With flexible seating, they will be able to channel all their energy while rocking on their wobble stools. Once their bodies are able to get the wiggles out, their minds can focus on what's really important.

This new movement towards flexible seating is highly effective at supporting kiddos with these challenges.
