Ms. Klingenfuss from Orangevale CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wobble, Wobble, Wobble!

My students need wobble cushions, chairs and yoga balls as alternative seating to feel calm, comfortable, and safe in the classroom while learning.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best varies greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The Wobble cushions, stool, and yoga ball that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. These Wobble cushions, stool, and yoga ball will allow students movement and will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed!

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
