Wiggle- Part 2

Help me give my students a comfortable seat to wiggle & learn in.

My Students

My 7th Grade Social Studies students travel throughout Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas during Medieval Times. They are the perfect age to learn through simulations, mature enough to understand the purpose, but still young enough to pretend. This is one of the many reasons I love my students.

For some of my students, the class is the best part of their day, they deserve an amazing space to learn and collaborate.

I strive to make my room a warm and inviting environment and I am trying to create some flexible seating options. I have seen so many amazing classrooms with designated areas for different types of group work, low tables with beanbags, high tops with stools, and couches offer an alternative to my traditional desks.

I want my students to have options, so I am starting small and trying to fund a Howda Hug sensory chair for students that need sensory integration as part of their day.

My Project

Imagine having to sit on a hard metal seat that is connected to a desk for 5+ hours a day? Not only are they uncomfortable, but in order to get in or out, students need to contort their bodies so their legs can swing out to the side with the opening. My students are expected to learn this way but I want to give them better seating options. I am inspired by amazing classrooms I see online but I am also overwhelmed because I need to accommodate up to 27 tweens in my small classroom. Many of my students are in the midst of their growth spurt, their legs barely fit under the desk.

Wobble stools are the first step I am taking to create some flexible seating options for my students; not only are they a great trick for fidgety students, but they will also be a needed sensory break for anyone who is tired of sitting in a metal chair for most of the day.

I have seen them in other classrooms and I already have a perfect conference table to place them around. I am excited and proud to submit my second Donors Choose project.
