Ms. TRUGILLO from Eleele HI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle Wobble Works Well

Help me give my students flexible seating options and sensory outlet accessories to help them focus while learning. The AQUIVA Wooden Wobble Board and TRIDEER Inflatable Wobble Cushions build core muscles so my students can attend to learning.

My Students

Our students are thoughtful, creative and are constantly wondering about their world. They come from a community that is rich in history and diversity of culture. Many are being raised in homes of hardworking, multigenerational support systems. Please help me enrich these students’ lives with a healthy balance of social-emotional tools and developmentally appropriate opportunities in the classroom which will continue to encourage their curiosity, embrace their creativity and build their self-confidence. These young minds are constantly wondering, questioning and eager to learn through their natural environment and appropriate technology.

My Project

Many students at this age are still developing their gross motor skills in Kindergarten but are also challenged to pay close attention to visual discrimination and fine motor tasks such as reading and writing.

The Wobble Cushions and Wobble Board can be used by all the students in my class to help them attend longer, focus on learning skills and be less distracted, or distracting, toward others in class.

The color overlays will also help students who are emergent readers be able to distinguish words and symbols while reading early emergent leveled readers in class.

Several of my students have difficulty following directions and staying on-task, not out of misbehavior, but because their young bodies still need to wiggle, fidget and wobble in order to process information adequately. Help me help these six-year-old wiggle worms who want to read and write well. Now that a tongue-twister!!!
