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

Movin' and Learnin'

My students need opportunities to move their bodies while they are learning and having wobble stools allow them that ability.

My Students

I have a wonderful group of students who are very eager to learn. They are so excited about learning and think that every thing we do is neat and exciting. It made me giddy to hear a student exclaim, "This is so much fun," while actually learning.

There are 35% of my students who did not attend a preschool program last year.

Unfortunately they are lacking in skills their other classmates have. Many of my students need to be able to move in order to learn better.

My Project

Kindergarten students need to have many opportunities to move around but also learn how to sit at a table. By having wobble stools this allows students to do both. Students are able to sit at their tables and do their work while still moving their bodies.

Wobble stools are a LIFE-Changer for active kids, kids with ADHD and Autistic kids.

Aggressive wobbling on a wobble stool increases blood to the brain and therefore quiets the requirement for fidgety kids to move. Kids are able to learn better and be more productive while getting restless energy out. They are also great for building back muscles.
