Ms. Leland from Hampden ME is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in First Grade

My students need flexible seating in our classroom to help them focus while learning.

My Students

My students are 5, 6 and 7 years old. They love to move a lot when they are learning. The majority of my class have a hard time to sit in a seat for longer than ten minutes. Their little brains can focus more when they are moving.

First-grade students are full of energy!

It is important that they are able to move and wiggle. These wiggle stools are perfect to help all of my students reach their full potential.

My Project

Flexible seating is so important for students. I currently have exercise balls, crates, and pillows for them to sit on at their tables. Wiggle stools would be a perfect addition to our flexible seating needs. This will give my students more options of where to best sit to meet their energy level and be able to focus on the lesson.

These wiggle stools will give my students the opportunity to learn and move at the same time to reach their maximum learning potential.

Having flexible seating in my room has proven to be beneficial to all of my students learning.
