Mrs. Polley from Agawam MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wobble While You Work!

My students need flexible seating options. I would love to provide wobble chairs as they are a great idea for students who need to move to maximize their learning.

My Students

I truly believe in the following quote, "Fair isn't everyone getting the same thing...Fair is everyone getting what they need to be successful." —Author Unknown

I love that my students love to learn!

Not only are they learning the 4thgrade curriculum, they are learning to make many choices about what works best for them as a learner. This includes choosing to sit where they are most comfortable during independent working time. We also spend time talking about the above quote.

My Project

Have you ever tapped your pencil while thinking? How about wiggling your feet while reading? Like you, some students have excess energy and others just work and learn better when they can move. During independent working time, I believe in letting my students choose to work where they are most comfortable. For some this means staying at his/her table and sitting in his/her chair. You will, however, find some students lying on the floor with clipboards, sitting in a rocking chair, and sitting on crates at a table that has been lowered. I’d love to offer some wobble chairs in my classroom as another option for those students.
