Flexible Seating for Focused Learning

My students need high-quality wobble stools as a seating option in our flexible seating arranged classroom.

My Students

Kids are like sponges - they absorb everything that they encounter, whether it's what they learn at school or home. Worrying about food, money, transportation, and clothing are adult worries, yet many of the students at my school face these grown-up problems each day.

In spite of the challenges they face, my students constantly rise to the occasion and frequently blow me away with their ability to learn.

I want to give my amazing students every opportunity they deserve and then some.

My Project

We currently have low-quality stationary stools that my students naturally like to tip, which weakens the legs. Having wobble stools that give in to their natural desire to rock, will help keep my students stay focused without worrying if the legs will give out.

Studies show that students who are able to move while learning are more engaged and retain information better.

Our classroom is a flexible seating classroom with many different seating options. My students love to choose a new learning seat every day! Please help my students receive these high-quality stools that will last many years to come.
