Mrs. Pilgrim from Kansas City MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While You Work!

My students need flexible seating options to allow them to wiggle while they work. This makes it easier for them to focus on their task and have a deeper understanding of what they are learning.

My Students

My students come to school everyday ready to take on the day and expand their minds with knowledge. The majority of my students come from diverse cultures and socioeconomic statuses. Almost all my students qualify for a free or reduced lunch. They are eager and compassionate students who need a positive start to their day in order to help them feel like they are part of our classroom community. With your generous donation, I can create a positive, productive learning environment where they are developing their minds and hearts everyday.

My Project

Flexible seating will help us wiggle while we learn! The seating I've chosen for this project will allow my students to move as they listen and work. Young children naturally move and wiggle constantly. Students learn better when they are able to move somewhat.

These seats will give them several options to choose from so that they can take ownership of their learning while staying on task.

The wobble cushions and chairs are convienent so that students can either stay at their table to concentrate better or choose another spot around the room to work.

For many of my students who have trouble staying focused and need to move their bodies, these seats will truly help them. By letting them wiggle in an appropriate and constructive way, they will be able to reach their full learning potential! This will give them the self-confidence to meet their goals and grow exponentially!
