Mrs. Estridge from Rock Hill SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's Ok to Wiggle in Kindergarten!

My students need Wobble and Jellyfish chairs because many cannot sit still when having small group and independent work time. Their wiggles cause them to lose focus on academics.

My Students

My school is an arts school of choice. Students are allowed to come to this school through a lottery, however most students are from the original school attendance zone.

My students love our two wobble chairs we already have in the classroom and watching them wobble and work is an amazing thing to see!

Most of my class will go to the tall table with the two wobble chairs that we were lucky to borrow from a teacher this year. They are for big kids so my kindergarteners feet dangle off but that doesn't stop them from wanting to sit there each and every day to do their work.

These students know how to share, be kind and make choices for other areas in the classroom so this helps me to know that when they are able to have more choices in seating they will truly enjoy it.

My Project

My students have trouble with focusing on a task that is longer then five minutes at a time, without a movement break. They are constantly wiggling and seem to do better when they have their movement breaks. Many times their movements during work time cause them to lose focus on what they should be doing academically during independent and small group work.

Choices in seating like the Wobble chairs and Jellyfish Jr chairs will enable students to have more movement and be more aware of how their choices can benefit them as a learner.

The chairs will help them have movement without actually getting out of their seat and losing focus and time on important academics. Giving students the power of choosing their seat gives them more power in how they can help their own learning.

Flexible seating is becoming a need in the modern day classroom. Students no longer learn the same way as students in the 80s or 90s. Students in this era relate to a more friendly, comfortable, aesthetic environment, which these chairs help to accomplish.
