Mrs. Peyer from Eagle River WI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 5 wobble chairs instead of the desk/chair combos that we have in our classroom now.
I teach 5th grade math to five different classes. They are an AMAZING group of 5th graders that are hard-working and love being challenged. They are my heroes! Many of them come from low-income families and face challenges both in and out of the classroom.
They come into my classroom ready to learn, and I want to help them by providing them with flexible seating so they can stay motivated and focused during instruction and independent work.
My students have a lot of energy. They need to be able to move to release that energy, instead of being stuck in a traditional desk with attached chair!
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Having these wobble chairs in my classroom will allow my students an option of being able to move to release built up energy. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.
The wobble chairs that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed!
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and demeanor. I hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
