Mrs. Castillo from Weimar TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Strengthening Our Bodies, Balancing Our Minds

My students need flexible seating options (wobble chairs) in order to focus their bodies and minds during small group instruction.

My Students

Do you know what makes our school the best place in the world? Other than the rock star teachers and creative little learners, it's the community that surrounds us. It's our classroom community, our school community and our small little community where we all live and support each other. My students come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day! Our school is the only elementary school in our small town, so we really are a tight-knit family. That means if our students need something, we work for it. If they make a mistake, they learn and grow from it. And if we can make our learning more meaningful and fun, we do it! Our students come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day! However, back in August, many of our students and staff were exposed to a world they've never seen. Our community slowly began to disappear under water. Hurricane Harvey impacted many of our lives, but wouldn't know the loss by my kiddos’ bright and shining faces, the perseverance they show, or the kindness and friendship they pour from their hearts!

My Project

My students need to keep their bodies just as active as their brains during the day. Sitting still in a hard chair is not always the most comfortable option for many students and can be hard on their posture, motivation, and engagement levels.

These flex-space wobble chairs and wobble ball seating options will allow my kiddos to move about the room and set up where the action is happening and keep their bodies engaged, as well as their minds.

As grownups, we function best when we choose how and where we want to sit; our students deserve the same opportunity to decide what is comfortable for them as well, so they can perform at their best.
