Ms. Fanz from Saint Louis MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While You Work

Help me give my students flexible seating options like wobble stools, stability cushions, and stability donuts so they can focus on their learning, instead of wiggling!

My Students

Many of my students face struggles and challenges in their daily lives, but I see their dedication, and the joy they find in learning is truly inspiring.

We work together to create a learning community where everyone is safe and feels valued.

During their time in my class, I work to show my students the rewards hard work brings, as well as to show them that our unique differences are to be celebrated and respected.

I teach in a Title I school with the majority of students receiving free or reduced price lunch. While our families want their children to be successful, and there is great community support for the schools, I know that many students will not come to school prepared with the necessary supplies. I do my best to ensure that all students have what they need academically, physically, and emotionally during the time they are in my care.

My Project

We currently have a few wobble stools available in our classroom, and they are by far the most popular seat in the house! Students love being able to move around a bit as they work, and for several the sensory input they receive from the stools is essential for them to focus. By adding additional stools, along with the stability donuts (a safer alternative to stability balls) students will have more options available.

Students who are comfortable and feel at ease are free to focus on their learning and can complete their work without being distracted by their own body!

Wobble stools and the donuts also make great options for group work. They are light weight and easy to transport around the room, allowing students to work at tables, or to group themselves elsewhere in the room.

Please help me add more flexible seating so all my students can have the best seat in the room!
