Ms. Klingaman from Yuma AZ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggling, Talking, Learning: Yes! They're Related!

Help me give my students headsets so they can have the chance to use technology to learn English and wobble chairs to jiggle out the wiggles while they do it!

My Students

I teach 6th grade English Language Learners in a rural, low economic area. My students are eager to learn and working hard to learn English (a difficult language by any standard!)

When every day is a challenge at home, then school becomes their safe place.

I want my students to know that they are safe here and that their needs will be met. From free lunch and breakfast to classroom supplies, to a sympathetic ear is what they get at school.

Many of my students do not get to live full time with mom and dad, much less both mom and dad. The home they live in is often temporary and several will change schools every year. Giving them a solid, caring, and nurturing environment while simultaneously pushing them to grow and become more independent is a challenge, but one we all strive to meet.

My Project

My kids need to move more than I can give them time for in a day. If they can squirm and wiggle in a way the furniture allows, then they can also keep their concentration. I have an ELL class. Many of them are on Rosetta Stone and they have to have headphones with microphones. We have old and broken ones with wires MacGivered together! We desperately need new ones. Kids are more inclined to stay focused with an Ipad and an interactive app. Learning English is hard! My students need every opportunity to learn. We are in an impoverished rural area, so even fund-raising can't get us the funds we need.
