Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is made up twenty-one curious and enthusiastic kindergarteners who come to school eager to learn each day. Students range in ages from five to six years old and are beginning their school experience in a public school system.

My kindergarteners truly love coming to school and learning about the world around them!

Our classroom is full of energy and my students learns best by learning through movement. Not only is learning fun for them but as I teacher I get to observe connections being and academic growth throughout the year.

My Project

Flexible seating is a must in the early childhood world! Kindergarteners need optional seating in order to comfortably focus on classroom projects. This addition will enhance the overall learning environment of my classroom!

My students will use the items every day and it will impact future classes!

Students will be more engaged in their work if they are provided an opportunity to select where they work. The yoga ball seating will be perfect for students who prefer to bounce while working. While the wiggle cushions can be used on the carpet or in a chair and give students an opportunity to wiggle.
