Help me give my students a place where they can wiggle and wobble while they sit…helping them focus as they move.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Hi, I am a kindergarten/first grade teacher who loves to teach and expand the minds of my students. I have wonderful students who love to explore, investigate, and learn. I have 24 students in my classroom from various backgrounds and socioeconomic status.
My students have a smile on their face and are eager to learn in my classroom.
Many of my students enjoy having opportunities to learn about different cultural experiences. My students are excited to interact with their fellow classmates and build a classroom setting that is proactive while also synergizing. From my perspective, the students that have been coming into my classroom lately have a sparse oral vocabulary due to the fact that life is busy and electronics and technology are everywhere. It is my goal to provide opportunities for my students to develop their language, creativity, and problem-solving skills.
These cushions will provide my students the ability to wiggle and wobble while they sit…helping them focus and stay on task. These cushions will add to the flexible seating that I have within my classroom, to give my students a variety of ways to get their wiggles out while they work. Sitting for a long period of time can be difficult for a child, especially if they are active. These cushions will help the students to move their bodies quietly while also being able to stay engaged in the lesson that is being taught. It is a win-win for the teacher and student.
