Mrs. Jordan from Richburg SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Movement Produces Engagement

My students need the wobble stools for guided reading and guided math. Instead of having to sit still during discussion or small group time, students would be able to "get out their wiggles" while being engaged.

My Students

My students are wonderful, brilliant fifth graders. My students and I were together last year, in fourth grade, and we looped up to fifth grade. Each of the students have their own personalities, strengths, and unique learning styles.

I serve twenty-six amazing and passionate children, each day.

I love being their teacher because of the things they teach me and because of how receptive and engaged they are. Among our group, we do have several that struggle with being still for short or long periods of time. Those students have had or do have seating accommodations, such as stability balls, sitting desks, standing desks, or bands to kick. However, when it is guided reading or guided math time they struggle to stay focused because they must sit still for group time.

Despite some of my students inability to remain still, they are still the most engaged, most excited, and most passionate (about learning) students I know. These students are all intelligent and can only benefit from another seating accommodation.

My Project

The active core engagement stools will have a positive impact on my student learning. These will allow them to move their bodies while their brain is working. Their school lives will also benefit and grow because they are able to get their need for movement out while they are learning.

The active core engagement stools will be specifically used during guided/small group instruction.

Students that are moving, especially during small group instruction, have a better chance of staying focused, expressing themselves and being engaged. My students give their best each day, but with a little more movement they'd learn much more efficiently.
