Wobble Chairs to Increase Student Focus!

My students need these wobble chairs desperately to help them focus. I have one right now and already have a ton of kids begging to use it!! It really helps them focus.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are energetic, fun, and inquisitive. A lot of them have a lot of energy to burn but need to do it in more appropriate ways (ex. not disrupting others).

I teach science so my students do a lot of hands on activities which requires a lot of movement.

I am trying to find ways to allow movement that don't disrupt the learning environment but still promote engagement. I believe these wobble chairs will help do this for them!

My Project

A lot of my students have a really hard time sitting still and they tend to lean back in their chairs or try to rock them back and forth which causes disruptions. These chairs allow kids to wobble back and forth (and they don't tip over) without disrupting the class.

Wobble chairs take up very little space and don't fall over.

By donating to my class, you will be providing students who need movement to stay focused an opportunity to contribute to the learning environment in a non disruptive manner. My students will really benefit from these chairs so I thank you in advance for your consideration of a donation!
