Ms. McMullin-Yohe from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Wiggly Students

My students need to each have access to a Gaiam Kids Stay-N-Play Childrens Inflatable Balance Ball Desk Chair so they can move their bodies while they work on academic tasks.

My Students

My class of 3rd graders is fun and full of energy. I have a wide range of levels and capabilities in my class, but all of my students are hard workers. Our class consists of many students from low income families and of a variety of cultural backgrounds. Several of my students are fluent in English and Spanish, speaking Spanish primarily at home.

My students are energetic, spunky, and creative.

I admire how they do not let difficult tasks stop them. They love learning and are eager to try new things. Reading is quickly becoming a passion for them, as they attempt to learn more about interesting topics.

My Project

Students need to be able to move their bodies frequently throughout the school day. It is unrealistic to expect children to sit still for long periods of time. As an adult, even I do not want to sit still in a hard chair. How can we expect children to do what adults are not even capable of doing?

Children need to move, and sitting on a balance ball can help to meet this need in a way that is not disruptive during academic time.

The Gaiam Kids Stay-N-Play Children's Inflatable Balance Balls offer students the opportunity to sit down and move at the same time. Aside from the obvious benefit of increased attention span due to movement, using balance balls as chairs can help children improve the strength of their core muscles and can improve posture. Balance balls are wonderful tools for students with special needs as well as regular education students.
