Mrs. Osborne from Kokomo IN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting the Wiggles Out!

My students need stability balls and wobble cushions to begin transitioning into Flexible Seating. They allow the student's to get their wiggles out without disrupting their neighbors.

My Students

I teach some wonderful, high energy Kindergartners. Our school district has a high percentage of free and reduced-price lunches and low income families. The kiddos love to wiggle and learn.

I want my students to have a loving, safe environment to come into everyday.

I strive to be that safe haven for them to go to. Even though some of the students come from low income families, I want them to have every opportunity to succeed in their work and life in general.

My Project

Students are expected to sit longer due to longer school days and more work. Recess is only 30 minutes a day. If we have inside recess, they are not able to move like in outdoor recess or gym. We only have gym once a week. The students then have trouble sitting and focusing on their work.

The kiddos need to be able to wiggle and jiggle.

The balance balls and cushions help provide the sensory stimulation needed without disrupting their neighbors. They also help work on the students' posture! Posture is important in so many aspects of schooling. Handwriting is just one!
