Mrs. Holmstadt from Menomonie WI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wobble While You Work!

My students need these wobble stools to have more flexible seating that allows them to move while they work in different areas of the room.

My Students

Our elementary school is part of the Menomonie School District and has a population of approximately 400 students. We have a fabulous group of 77 fourth graders. They are split into three classrooms of 25-26 students, which is a lot for one classroom!

They have busy minds and busy bodies!

Our school serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment. We strive to offer students workspaces that best serve their varying learning needs.

My Project

Students need to be able to move a little while they are working. We ask them to sit and attend sometimes for more than their bodies can handle. They love to move out of their desks to work, and can be more productive and focused when able to do so!

These stools will allow students the chance to move while still getting work done.

These stools will also be quiet so that it is not distracting to others working around them. This is a big bonus when having limited workspaces due to large class numbers. These stools will help the students to stay focused on learning and get the movement in that they need.
