Mrs. Sickler from Napa CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need stability balls, wobble chairs and wobble cushions so that they can have the same benefits as other more up-to-date, affluent schools.
Five year olds are amazing! They are eager to learn and love. I often say they are little sponges and it is such a thrill to help them make sense of the world.
It's amazing what my little people learn in a year!
Not just about reading, writing, and math but also how to be a part of a larger classroom community. How to have empathy, how to understand and accept people that are different from them and their family.
I have a very diverse classroom. One of our students is a severely non-verbal autistic child. I also have students from varying levels of economic status and cultures. Needless to say the children in my class are multi-leveled in academics and coping skills. They all hold the commonality of wanting to have fun and learn.
After 30+ years of teaching all different grade levels I am happy to say that I feel like I have the best job in the world!
Research has shown the benefits of flexible seating in the classroom, and I am eager to give it a try. With flexible work spaces students can choose to work on the floor on a wobble seat, standing or sitting while moving on a stability ball or wobble chair.
Choice, physical health, comfort and a sense of community are part of the benefits of flexible seating.
As high tech companies have discovered, flexible seating promotes productivity. Not to mention that five year olds can concentrate better while they move!
I need Wobble cushions, wobble chairs, and stability balls to make my classroom vision a reality! The total project would cost $777.07. Many schools in more affluent areas have already moved to flexible seating and I want my kids to have the same advantages as others. Thank-you for helping make this dream come true!
