Mrs. Near from Frisco TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggly Kids Need Moving Seats!

Help me give my students a choice on where they can sit and learn best with seats that let them move as they work!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My kindergarten students come to school and love to learn. They are little wiggle worms and love the few pieces of flexible seating I have available in the room. They love the small group reading time. Seeing the joy in their eyes when they can read a book independently and successfully is something everyone should be able to experience.

My students are very energetic and love to move around the room.

We have free seating choice in our class, so everyday, they choose where they want to sit that day when the enter the room.

My Project

Kindergartners need a place to sit and work that gives them freedom to wiggle without disrupting the whole group. Flexible seating lets the students choose what type of learning spot works best for them. Chairs, like the ones I'm asking for, will let the students pick an area where they can work and also keep their little bodies moving with all the energy they bring to school!

Donations to this project will help the students focus on their attention on their work because they are getting wiggles out without even realizing it.

The little movements these seats allow them to do can help keep them attentive and on task!
