Mrs. Locke from College Station TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While You Work

My students need stools so they can move and learn at the same time.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are kids, kids who need to be able to move. That is the one thing I always want to remind myself. My students need to have the opportunity to move and still work at the same time.

My kids love to learn, but some just can't sit for as long as needed.

They need a way to move around and work at the same time.

My students come from homes where sometimes they are left alone for many hours at a time. They find ways I entertain themselves and learn on their own. When in the classroom, I want to give them the best environment for learning.

My Project

These wiggle stools will make a big difference in the success my students' learning. We have incorporated a few flexible seats in the classroom, and they have had a huge impact on the students' motivation to learn. Due to the excitement of the other seats, I am wanting to add the wiggle stools as another option for them to choose from for their seats. The stools will allow them to be able to move while learning at the same time. I have many students who need to be able to move. They cannot sit in one spot for a long period of time. This will help resolve any of those issues they have.
