Mrs. Miller from San Jose CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Movement Helps Us Focus!

My students need wobble stools and cushions to help them focus by allowing for movement during lessons. The furniture allows for small movements that help kids but are not disruptive.

My Students

My students are very excited about learning. They come to my classroom with a variety of learning levels and styles. Some students are above grade level while others are far below. Some students understand how to behave in a classroom and others are still learning.

Sometimes my students have a hard time sitting still and listening during class.

The opportunity to move during lessons allows them to focus better and learn more. I am always seeking out new ways to engage and support my students by allowing them to move.

My Project

My students will use these Wobble seats and cushions all day, during literacy and math groups, writing, science and social studies lessons. The furniture allows students to move in a way that keeps them busy, but is not disruptive to the learning environment. It also brings in the element of choice because students can experiment and see which flexible seating option helps them learn best.

Students are more engaged when they are are asked what helps them learn most effectively.

Flexible seating is one way to put this into action because students can try out different seating options and decide what works for them. This is especially true for students who have special needs in the classroom.
