Mrs. Fitzgerald from Binghamton NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle Seats for Wiggly Learners

My students need flexible seating options to help them stay focused. These wiggle stools give them an option other than the traditional chair, and allows them to release some energy while sitting.

My Students

I teach reading to students in an upstate New York title one school. My school is in a high needs community that is high poverty. I work specifically with Kindergarten through second grade students who are reading below grade level.

My students are from diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of needs.

I work with a dedicated and knowledgeable staff that does their best to teach in creative ways to keep all students focused and engaged. Some of our students have limited home resources and support so it is very important that we provide them with a high quality learning environment. Even with all of the challenges my students face, they come to school ready to learn. In addition, they are especially eager to read once they are provided with texts at their level and the small group instruction that I provide in addition to their classroom instruction.

Hearing my students talk excitedly about reading, and asking for new books is always the highlight of my day!

My Project

My students have an array of needs and often have difficulty sitting still and staying focused. Focus is especially important because their time in my classroom is short. In addition, we use an intense and fast paced program for reading intervention.

Your generous donation to our project will allow students to move quietly in wiggle seats without leaving our reading table or distracting others.

Students who need the stimulation of motion can choose the wiggle seat to move in a silent way. It will keep students on task, reduce the amount of times they leave their seats, and prevent them from sitting unsafely in traditional chairs.
