Wobbling While Reading

My students need wobble chairs to be able to wiggle and move safely in order to better focus on learning to read.

My Students

I work with struggling readers in the first and second grades. My school is in a high poverty location with all students receiving free lunch based on the low socioeconomic status. My students want to learn how to read, but they face many challenges in doing so. Many of my students are living in one parent households or with relatives. Many times there is no one willing or able to help them read at home.

My students are eager to become better readers.

They ask questions about what they have read. They often ask if they are making progress. I encourage them daily to read and never give up because "practice makes perfect."

My Project

My students are very active and need to move with wobble chairs while learning new skills. Every group that I work with wiggles in their chairs, and often the positions they choose are unsafe. I understand their need to move while learning, and would like to provide a safe way for them to do this.

Your generous donation would allow my students to wiggle safely while they strengthen their reading skills.

Students would be able to rock and wiggle without tipping over the chair and possibly causing severe injury. This grant will allow me to focus more on how my students are reading and not how they are sitting.
