Ms. Toombs from Colorado Springs CO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While You Work!

Help me give my students a flexible seating option. These amazing stools help the kids who have a difficult time sitting still a way to get out their wiggles while remaining focused and working.

My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. I have a high population of special needs students this year. The greatest thing about all of my students is that they are actively learning how to be empathetic toward others who may need empathy. They are learning that not everyone learns in the same way so they are willing to give their best effort and keep and flexible mindset. They are a happy-go-lucky bunch and I am lucky to be their teacher.

My Project

What an amazing way to help my kids. I would buy one of these for all of my students if I could, as kids have become more and more unable to sit still. By donating these Wobble Stools, you are helping me help my students. These stools give an outlet for my wiggliest kiddos while helping them remain focused and on-task. I already know 5 kids who will directly benefit from the donation of these stools and they will be almost as grateful as I will be. By donating to our classroom’s flexible seating options, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
