My students need Wobble Chairs, floor seats, and other seating options to provide comfort and to release physical stress and anxiety. The seating creates a calming effect, enhances learning, and reduces disruptive behavior.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are awesome in so many ways! Our elementary school houses approximately 1,200 K-4 students who present unique challenges and disadvantages. Given their diversity, it is important to present them with the best resources possible to engage and stimulate their learning.
My students are excited to learn in ways that stimulate their emotional, social, physical and academic growth.
They are constantly seeking praise and present a strong desire to learn in different ways. I am so blessed to spend my days with them!!
Wobble chairs, flex-space floor chairs, comfy chair cushions and balance balls will allow my students to choose seating unlike traditional chairs. Elementary students are always moving and should not be expected to sit still all day long as a requirement to learning. Flexible seating is a childs’ dream come true!
The flexible seating options allow for community, collaberation, movement, comfort and sensory input.
All of the qualities of this type of seating will maximize learning and productivity. Students challenged with sensory issues will benefit from the calming effect offered by flexible seating.
I have had experience with this type of arrangment and have witnessed the increased engagement and the reduction of disruptive behaviors. I wish this existed when I was a kid...don't you?
