Ms. Smith from Du Bois PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle, Peddle, and Move. Flexible Seating Will Keep Us Learning.

My students need flexible seating that will let them wiggle and move and work. Stability chairs will help us engage our core and under desk bicycles will keep the wigglers peddling to success.

My Students

My middle school students love to move around. They work at their desks, on carpets on the floor and at standing podiums. They appreciate that they have seating options to best meet their learning needs.

They are amazing people with creative ideas.

We live in a rural area in Pennsylvania. Over 50% of our students are considered economically disadvantaged and About 1,000 students walk through the the halls of my school and they are bused in from a number of surrounding villages and towns.

My Project

The materials I am requesting will help my students be active while learning. Every student has different learning requirements. These materials would help my busy students and my wigglers learn in a way that best suits them.

In my classroom, the students like to sit at desks, on the floor and stand while working on tasks.

Students can use the stability chairs and stools to engage their core and be able to wiggle and move in a way that a standard desk cannot allow. Other students who typically tap pencils or tap feet during class can be cycling away with the under desk bicycle units. These materials would help these busy students stay focused.
