Mrs. Nelson from Twin Lakes WI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While We Learn

My students need flexible seating options, such as a stability ball chair, wobble stools, and disk seat, for students who need to wiggle while they learn!

My Students

Each day, I am fortunate to greet fifteen unique personalities at the door, eager and ready to embark on a new adventure!

Our class is filled with laughter, collaboration, and learning.

Our classroom is made up of seven and eight-year-old students who come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. They are able to come together to share their experiences and perspectives. Their natural curiosities are easily explored through a number of different tools. My students continuously challenge me, allowing me to learn and grow each and every day.

My Project

The wobble stools, balance ball chair, and disk seat will allow students to choose the seating that best fits their learning needs. We currently have cushions to sit on while reading, along with a few rocking chairs, but additional flexible seating is needed to help our class continue to be engaged learners! The dry erase clipboards will allow them to complete writing tasks while moving around the room to a smart spot.

Our classroom needs some flexible seating options to help keep students engaged, especially those who need to wiggle while they learn!

These specific seating options will be shared throughout the classroom by all of the students. They'll be used while reading, writing, solving problems, and everything else throughout the day!
