I currently teach 42 active children in Math and Social Studies throughout the day. They like to move while sitting, move while writing, and move while doing most things in our classroom. Sitting still using conventional school seating is just not something they do well (or should do well). Currently we have a limited number of active seating options, but more are needed so ALL of the students have a choice that fits their learning style best - not just half of the class. I would love every student to be able to select the type of seating that allows them to pay attention and be actively engaged for longer periods of time. Active seating is also highly beneficial to students with learning disabilities such as ADD, ADHD, or even sensory perception disorders–having the ability to move about freely is critically important when it comes to being able to focus on classroom work. Your donation would make it possible for my students to maintain focus on their work rather than wanting to move around. Your help will give each one of my students the chance for a solid foundation! These items will bring excitement to their learning and will give my students the ability to concentrate on their academics that they so desperately need! This project will keep on giving in subsequent years!
