Mrs. Reed from Delton MI is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle, Bounce, Lean, and Sit Safely

My students need seating that fulfills their desire to move, bounce, or wiggle while they work. The chairs I am requesting will allow my students a choice.

My Students

I am fortunate to teach in a caring and supportive community. Most of the families have lived in the area for generations. The community supports its schools despite the fact that its residents are low socio-economic population. Due to decreasing enrollment at the school, the school is in financial distress.

Our school parents, like all parents, want what's best for the education of their children.

They give as much as they can to fund supplies and consumables that go to the classrooms. However, the financial problems of the school have negatively impacted every classroom. Our student-teacher ratio is extremely high and students are often crammed into classrooms that are too small to allow them much room to comfortably work.

Many teachers furnish their classrooms with couches, futons, and other furniture that gives a school room more of a homey feeling. My room is too small for those items, but I still want my classroom to be a comfortable area for students to learn. That's where you can help.

My Project

I am requesting wobbly chairs that my students can use during all types of activities in the classroom. Some students need to bounce or wiggle and lean and get their energy out so they can attend to the desired task in the classroom. The seats can move to various areas of the classroom so students are not confined to a particular area, but once in these wobbly chairs, they may not want to move about at all!

The items on my wish list will allow my students to work in comfortable seats and not take up additional room in an already crowded classroom.

Students will not feel the need to get up out of their seats and possibly cause distractions to others because they will be comfortable in their designated seat.
