Mrs. Kidd from Amarillo TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While We Learn!

My students need wobble chairs, stability disks, and resistance bands for their chairs to help with movement while they learn.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students in my room range from kindergarten through 5th grade, and have learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, or other health impairments like ADHD. Their circumstances may slow their learning process down, but it certainly doesn't stop them from trying their hardest to accomplish their goals.

My students are eager to come into my room each day because they feel safe and know they can be themselves without judgment.

We've created a community of love and acceptance, and that community changes and gets better with every new student that comes in. They are silly, creative, wiggly, loud, learners, and they have the kindest hearts.

My Project

Most students, in this day in age, need to move while they learn. Sometimes, movement is the only way a child can focus to stay engaged in a lesson or activity. This seems even more true for students with disabilities. Flexible seating in classrooms is an excellent solution for this type of engagement.

Different students need different types of movement while they learn.

Some may work best using a wobble chair or stability disk, while another student may work best using a band to kick against while sitting in a desk.

With the help of our generous donors, we will be able to wiggle while we learn. Please help me to get my students the flexible seating options we need (wobble chairs, stability disks, and resistance bands to put on chair legs) to be engaged and successful in our classroom.
