Wiggle Into Writing with Active Learning Stools

My students need 6 Active Learning Stools to allow them to release energy while staying focused on learning goals.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are navigating through the ups and downs of middle school, many while learning English as a new language. They come to school every day enthusiastic to continue the next chapter of our novel or show me how far they had gotten in their writing. This enthusiasm is often portrayed through high energy levels in the classroom!

Each student has different needs in the classroom, so we try to incorporate options for students to take ownership of their learning.

We have the privilege of one-to-one devices this year. Our students’ passion for learning has only grown with the opportunity to step into the driver’s seat of their education through various learning platforms. Their excitement and the emotions that come across as they see their scores improving throughout the year is truly inspirational. My goal is to enhance student’s control over the classroom by providing more opportunities for them to get their wiggles out, so they can focus energy on meeting and exceeding their learning goals.

My Project

Funding this project of six active learning stools will provide more seating options for my students. We currently only have room for two standing spaces in our classroom. These stools will provide more students access to release energy, without needing to stand around the room working on the tops of our bookshelves. Adding these stools would be the first step in providing students with flexible seating options in our classroom. The rocking motion ability of these learning stools will help keep students on task while they release pent up energy.

Flexible seating options created with these learning stools will allow students to take charge of their learning environment.

The stools will decrease the number of students in the classroom wiggling their feet against the chairs and tapping their writing utensils on the desks. This will create an environment with less distractions for all students. The stools also encourage proper posture, which is even more important now that we are using one-to-one devices.
