Mrs. Mendoza from La Puente CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wonderful Wobbling: Engaged Effective Learning!

My students need these wobble chairs to experience the freedom of flexible seating. Kindergarten students are more engaged and successful at learning when they have the freedom to move their bodies while they are participating.

My Students

What I love about my students is that they always have a positive attitude to try new learning! My students come from low income households, where our school is 95% free/reduced lunch. Many times their only exposure to new adventures, learning and safety are purely supplied in our school environment.

Because my students are engaged and focused on new learning (just movement driven) they deserve the same opportunities to excel in their education journey , and it starts in Kindergarten!

My Project

Having 24 Kindergarteners is like trying to nail Jell-O to a wall. Jello-O is more effective when it has the ability to move. Having Wobble chairs from Amazon will give my Kindergarteners the opportunity to move their bodies during independent work time, so that they may be more engaged and productive during center time.

Currently, my students have the opportunity to make their own seating choices from ball seats, scoop rockers and floor pillows.

The wobble chairs I have selected will give them one more option to help make more effective learning in our classroom. These wobble chairs are a great alternative to their regular class chairs.
