Mrs. Ling from Moncks Corner SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Like to Move It, Move It!

My students need wobble stools to provide the opportunity to move while learning. These stools also will increase engagement and will build core muscle tone.

My Students

My kindergarten students are part rural school school of approximately 750 students. Kindergarten students need the opportunity to be part of a developmentally appropriate kindergarten experience. Little ones are not designed to sit still for very long. Academic expectations are very high today so we must look for ways that we can keep students active and learning at the same time.

A student's ability to maintain upper body support can be aligned with a child's ability to read and write.

Gross motor abilities share connections with physical functions and cognitive abilities. Wobble stools allow students to attend to the task at hand but to move at the same time. Please consider making a donation toward a small group set of wobble stools.

My Project

My kindergarten students need the opportunity to move while learning to increase their engagement in academic content, and while simultaneously strengthening their core muscles. When we keep students active, we keep their energy levels up and provide their brains with the oxygen-rich blood needed for highest performance. All too often, in education we focus primarily on academic content in a one size fits all mentality.

The Washington Post states, "Letting kids move in class isn't a break from learning, it IS learning!" I want my students to increase their focus, their stamina, and their engagement.

By providing them the chance to move while they learn, my goal will be met, and they will find school a more fun place to learn.
