Ms. Gibbs from Easley SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexing for Our Room

My students need different seating options including wobble stools to be more successful in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

In our classroom, we strive to always do our personal best. We also recognize that each student's personal best may be different. Each one of my students is capable of so many things, yet most come to school with challenging situations.

My students come from a wide array of economic backgrounds.

Our school has a high rate of poverty, but you'd never know that based on my amazing students. Despite the odds, my students come to school to enjoy learning.

My Project

These wobble stools will be used during small group instruction for math and for flexible seating. So many students struggle with concentrating on lessons, especially a difficult subject like math. Allowing students the ability to move while working will keep their minds focused, yet allow for necessary movement.

Wobble stools provide an outlet for their energy, while helping them focus.

Students benefit from being able to choose the best space for them to learn. Having several options for students allows them to choose their most optimum learning environment. Also, these stools are heavy duty, which allows for students to benefit from them year after year.
