Mrs. Cox from Woodbridge VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While We Work!

My students need Wobble Chairs and Balance Balls for flexible seating. More than half of my students are restless boys and the balance are wiggly girls. Behavior problems go down and focus goes up!

My Students

We have a diverse student body in a Northern Virginia suburb. Some students do not have internet access in their homes. Almost 1/3 of our students have English as their second language. More than 1/2 of our students are on the free lunch program. Our school is a certified International Bacchelaureate school. My 4th grade class is excited about learning. These kids mean the world to me. I work long hours trying to be the best teacher I can be and to provide them with the best resources.

My Project

I have successfully used flexible seating with my students in the past. Unfortunately, the yoga balls I purchased were not durable and only held up for a few months. Students who are able to move and be comfortable can stay focused longer. Having a choice helps students feel empowered in their learning journey. I have had students with extreme ADD who could finally get their writing and reading done, while quietly bouncing on their seat. I encorporate movement in my lessons, but these wobble chairs and balance ball seats will be greatly appreciated by my active students. Students will wiggle their way to higher grades!
