Ms. Liou from Hawthorne CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle to Success

Help me give my students Bouncy Chair Bands, Balance Stability Discs, and CanDo Inflatable Donut Balls for the flexibility to get their wiggles out while they are working.

My Students

My students are sweet, loving, energetic 5 and 6 year olds who come to school ready to learn and explore new things. At 5 and 6, it is a real struggle for my little learners to sit at a desk for hours a day.

For most of my students, traditional classroom settings of just chairs and tables are not realistic for good learning outcomes.

Being able to provide my students with the option to get their wiggles out will result in more active, engaged, and relaxed students.

My Project

Asking 5 and 6-year-olds to stay in their seats for long periods of time is a lot to ask for. My kindergarteners need flexible seating options to help keep them engaged and focused.

A lot of my little learners just need to be able to move in order for them to learn.

The inflatable donut balls, bouncy chair bands, and stability discs will not only keep students more focused and engaged but also make school more fun and comfortable. I cannot wait to see the amount of engagement and active learning that will happen with the use of flexible seating in my classroom!
