Ms. Runnells from S Milwaukee WI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Get the Wiggles Out!

My students need the Zenergy Swivel Ball Chair, balance ball stool, and balance ball chair to help them get the "wiggles" out and focus on their schooling.

My Students

Imagine having to sit in a desk all. Day. Long. Now imagine being a student with a disability and being ask to do this all. Day. Long. This is a daily struggle for all of my 7th grade students with disabilities. When they come to my classroom, they need to get the "wiggles" out.

My students are my children.

I want them to have the best learning environment and opportunities they can have. Despite being asked to sit all day, my students come ready to learn and want to be the best that they can be!

My Project

My students with special needs at South Milwaukee Middle School will be able to come into my classroom and pick a seat that works best for their learning. Not every student works their best sitting in a typical classroom chair and desk. This project will allow 15 students in a self-contained classroom to choose their seat and learn they way they learn best!

Choose your seat!

Need to roll around? Pick the rolly chair! Need to bounce? Pick the bouncy chair or stool!

The National Autism Resource blog notes that flexible seating and wiggle seats greatly help students with Autism and ADD/ADHD focus, build core muscles, and lowers energy levels, thus helping students focus on school work. Can you help?
