Mrs. Kendrick from Calera AL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle Worms...Not with Flexible Seating! Forget About Those Wiggles!

Help me give my students flexible seating in our speech room so we can say our sounds, practice fluency, work hard, answer questions and learn!

My Students

I am a speech therapist in a Title I school in a small town in Alabama. My students are full of energy and eager to learn! They love hands-on activities and multi-sensory learning activities!

A variety of groups cross my path each day.

Different skills and supplies are needed to cover articulation, language, fluency, voice, AAC and more!

Flexible seating is a new avenue that we would love to add to our classroom! It is shown to increase attention and decrease distractions to help students maintain focus. We need flexible seating to add to our flexible learning environment. We would love your help with adding this to our classroom!

My Project

Flexible seating provides an outlet for children with excess energy and allows them to focus on their work. Having a way to move or wiggle while working allows an outlet for extra energy to be released, yet still allows for children to focus on their work. This is a wonderful option to provide children to help them attend or focus for lengthened amounts of time. Forget about having to manage not staying seated, fidgeting, or not keeping your hands to yourself when teaching. Flexible seating lets you wiggle while you work!

Thank you for providing funding for flexible seating in our speech room.

We have lots of wiggles and every second counts when you are working towards goals. Be happy, be bright and be you!
