Mrs. Teixeira from Patterson CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Every day I see that these are very determined and intelligent students.

It is very beneficial to have seating that will help students focus.

Wobble Stools are really good for students who have trouble focusing and sitting still.

We need more Wobble Stools in our class so my students can focus and succeed. This alternative seating will help get the wiggles out since it is hard for students to sit in a regular chair all day. My students always put their best effort, and this project will be even more beneficial for them.

My Project

We need more Wobble Stools. We were fortunate to receive a couple, but, with a class of 33, we need more. The Wobble Stools help students who may need help to focus and they also help with posture.

These 3 Wobble Stools will complete an area in our class that has flexible seating.

These stools are very stable compared to some stools we had before that broke because they were not Wobble Stools. Students typically lean a lot in their chairs because it is hard for them to focus sitting in a regular chair for several hours at a time.
