My students need wobbly chairs to help them do their best thinking. These stools allow them to concentrate on their activity at hand, while still allowing them to move and meet their physical needs.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Fourth grade students are amazing! Their love of learning and excitement about their growing knowledge of the world around them makes this career so rewarding. They love comfy places to relax and read. They enjoy expressing themselves through art and peer to peer interactions. Every day I learn something new about my students: their interests, cultures, and their views on our school community. At this age, they love to work in groups and enjoy laughing and learning together. I encourage movement and exploration and the students thrive in a happy, active environment.
Children, just like adults, often find themselves being more productive when they’re allowed to work on activities while “being comfortable”. This may include something to fidget with or having access to a chair that allows them to move while they think. These stools allow students to wiggle while they work. This will be my first set of wiggle stools. I hope to use these at my back table for reading and math groups. I will also offer these to students who would benefit from a non-traditional seating situation. Meeting students where they’re at with their needs creates happier, more successful children.
