Mrs. Stavash from Marlton NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggly Children, Wobble Chairs

My students need the Kore Kids Wobble Chair to assist them in their learning. I have seen how allowing children to move purposefully helps them to stay focused on their learning.

My Students

Squirmy, wiggly, little bodies often need an outlet to help them release energy yet stay focused at the same time. My students are a mixture of special education and general education learners. I have been using alternative seating now for several years after doing a research project on it for graduate school. I learned how it works and I can attest that in my classroom it works and helps all my learners.

So far I have purchased and utilized yoga balls, beach chairs, and even repurposed an old overhead projector cart as a standing desk.

It is awesome to see my learners bouncy gently on the yoga balls with their hands in the air, fully engaged in their lessons. The ability to provide movement in a constructive way allows them to focus better.

My Project

My students need the Kore Kids Wobble Chair to assist them in their learning. The Kore Kids Wobble Chairs will help my wiggly learners stay focused and thrive in their learning. I have been using alternate seating for several years now and I see a large benefit, especially to those students with attentional concerns. Wobble Chairs allow the child to stay in one location and wiggle and move. It strengthens their core muscles, which many children with special needs lack.

Allowing a child to move purposefully, engages their learning and enables them to move and wiggle at the same time.

I have been using yoga balls, beach chairs, and a repurposed overhead projector cart as alternative seating and I have seen my students more engaged in my lessons.
