My students need wobble chairs so that they can move while they learn.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The Mississippi Gulf Coast is a vibrant, eclectic area full of history, hospitality, and of my favorite--awesome children! My classroom is home to boys and girls of all socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of my students receive free or reduced lunch. Being located so close to different military bases, I have the privilege to work with military families who are being stationed here for the time being.
The most important thing about my students is that they are so in love with learning and are always so excited about new activities I have planned for them.
You can't teach enthusiasm, and boy are they full of it! I work hard to keep them engaged and offer chances for them to work alone, with peers, or in small groups with me.
Children need to move! Research has shown that children who are kinesthetic learners that are able to move while learning are more able to retain the information that they are receiving. Wobble chairs are the perfect way to allow kinesthetic learners to mover! The chairs wobble - without falling over - and allow the wigglers to get in the movements they so desperately need.
These wobble chairs will not only offer my students the ability to move while learning, but also will not cause a distraction to other students because they are silent.
With 4 wobble chairs, I can allow more children to work comfortably and allow for students to decide what type of chair they work best in.
