Mrs. Polley from Warren OH is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Why Sit When You Can Wobble

My students need these wobble stools to help them focus and stay engaged in the lesson. The caddy, pocket chart and pencil sharpener will help daily routines within the classroom.

My Students

I teach in an urban academy community school that provides a structured safe haven for alternative learners. We deliver highly specialized curriculum designed to engage children where they are developmentally delayed. Our academy is a non-profit school that fosters belonging and acceptance for every child. Our school is filled with eager to learn students, innovative, hardworking staff members, and supportive administrative leaders.

Specifically, I teach 8th and 9th grade and it is important for me to always make sure my students are provided with every opportunity and every resource they need to be able to learn, work, and grow as students.

Since our school district reports 100% of our students as economically disadvantaged, students lean on me and our school to provide them with what they need to learn. By understanding the way children learn best, I know it is important to not only make sure they are provided with basic school supplies, math and reading resources, but also recognizing when they need assistance with their basic needs being met as well so that they can learn and work to the best of their abilities and become successful, productive adults in the future!

My Project

My students are all from low income and the supplies that are given within the classroom are provided by the teachers and are often lost if taken outside of the room. The caddy and the folders will give the students a place to keep their work and keep it organized.

The majority of the students served have some learning and/or behavior challenges.

The students that are served are on IEP's or 504 education plans. The wobble stools will help the students stay engaged and be an active learner. By giving the students alternative seating will give them the opportunity to focus and learn.
