Mrs. Flynn from Easley SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Like to Move It! Flynn's Firsties Wiggle and Wobble!

My students need WOBBLE chairs so they can wobble, wiggle, and move while learning!

My Students

I haven't met the students that will be in my class for the upcoming year, but I am already excited to get to know them and to make learning fun and meaningful for them.

First graders have tons of energy and we want to use their energy for their learning advantage.

We need Wobble Stools to help us stay focused and work out energy in a positive way! The goal of this project is to meet the sensory needs of the children in my first grade classroom. These stools will allow student to wiggle, while remaining focused on the lesson and not disturb other students. It's tough to compete with the amount of screen time students receive.

Although I blend instruction with frequent brain breaks and use movement to stimulate their minds and bodies, students still need to stimulate their senses during lessons and the Kore Wobble Chairs would help with that. I would consider this to be active learning that will meet the needs of many of my students.

My Project

Students have never liked to sit still, but now there is a place for them to sit that allows them to be their energetic selves.The ingenious Wobble Stool design gently rolls with children's natural movements, so they stay supported and comfortable while they wiggle around on their stool. Ordinary chairs and stools force growing bodies into unnatural, static positions that are uncomfortable and don''t help children's posture.

Kids can sit, wiggle, and fidget on this nifty chair while intuitively exercising their back muscles and working out their restless energy in comfort and support!

This engages the body and the mind!
