Ms. Hannigan from Norfolk VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While You Read

My Students

My students are everything; they are so incredibly eager and hungry to learn. Their enthusiasm is contagious; it continually makes me excited to give them more. This is my 2nd year teaching and I am always looking for ways to differentiate learning for my students. They work hard no matter what the universe throws at them and they fill my life with so much joy.

My class is inclusion, meaning some of my students have special needs, but that does not stop them.

They come in every day ready to learn what I have to give them. Our room is full of wonders; every student is unique. After all the things that make us different are the things that make us, us.

My Project

Kindergarten is where we build the foundation for the rest of our learning careers. Reading group is where we do the majority of our reading and learning. My students come to me, most of them not knowing how to read, and throughout the year they learn their letter sounds and begin to piece together those sounds into words until they are reading at a DRA level 4. Giving my students the opportunity to wiggle while they read will allow them to fully focus on what is they are doing.

With 6 wobble seats my students will be able to have their own chair while they read, and their own space to focus their energy.
