My students need wobble chairs that allow for movement, fidgeting, and wiggling without distracting others and a new radio for all our music and reading needs.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom is full of energetic kindergarten kids. We use music to help with our learning from the time they walk in the door, until they leave in the afternoon. Active kids make the best learners!
My students are sweet, fun loving, curious, and full of energy five and six year olds.
Their personalities range from quiet and reserved all the way to lively and outgoing. One commonality they all have is their love of learning and being active in their learning. You just can't slow these kiddos down!
I use music in my classroom many times throughout the school day, from calendar time to listening center, rest time, fun brain breaks, and songs to reinforce learning. My current radio is literally on it's last leg. Sometimes the volume won't go up and giving it a swift whack isn't doing the job anymore!
The wobble chairs will allow those students who need extra movement and stimulation a chance to fidget and wiggle without distracting the rest of the class. It will also allow them to focus on the teacher and listen better during instruction and seat work time.
The radio and wobble chairs will make a great impact on my classroom.
I am excited to see the difference of having the wobble chairs available to my students. My co-worker was lent a wobble chair from the AEA to try in her classroom and she was very happy with the results. She recommended getting some for my little learners.
