My students need Wobble Chairs to support flexible seating in our classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.
Many of them are being raised in single parent households or by grandparents. The majority of students receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My students are extremely active students! I like to encourage movement for them as long as it helps with staying focused on their work. One way to do this is through flexible seating. We have gradually been building up different areas in our room for this including bean bag chairs, cushions, and under the seat bicycles. While these are great resources, there are not enough for all of my students.
These wobble seats would be another great way of helping our classroom develop more flexible seating options.
By having these seats, my students can safely wobble while working. This little bit of movement really helps my students to focus on their work.
