Mrs. Bernier from Indian Trail NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wobble Baby, Wobble Baby!

Help me give my students choice in their seating! Wobble chairs are the perfect seat that allow for some movement but also forces students to stay focused by using their core muscles.

My Students

I am back in the classroom after 14 years and now there are so many cool things available to help keep my very active second grade students engaged in learning! These kiddos are fun and energetic. I want them to have a classroom that reflects their personalities!

I am trying to empower my students as they transition from the K-2 world to 3rd grade.

Our classroom theme is S.M.I.L.E.- Self-Motivation Improves Learning Experiences and with flexible seating students will have the opportunity to be self-motivated to choose what is best for them in the classroom setting.

My Project

I teach second grade to 20 unique students. I want to empower my students to choose the environment that will let them learn best. Maybe is a wobble chair or a stool. Maybe it's a a wobble cushion or a kick band on their chair.

I want to give student choice without having them bounce on balls all day.

The items that I have chosen for this project have been shown in research that they allow kids some movement but still have to focus by using their core muscles to stay upright in the seat.

This seems like a Win-Win!
