My students need wobble chairs for classroom seating during extended lessons.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students are the heart and soul of our school. Each day is a great day with them! Most of our students come from low-income families with a median household income of $28,000.00 per year. In our county, 48% are single-parent families while 15.6% of the population is unemployed. The county's poverty index is 86.2%.
In the face of these discouraging odds, our students persevere, and successfully work and learn with the resources they are provided with.
Each year, our district's graduation rate has slowly increased. By utilizing the tools required to succeed, our students have the ability to meet and exceed their learning objectives.
As their teacher, I have had the privilege to witness my students' faces when they experience an "aha" moment. Their excitement is a beautiful sight to behold. This past year showed significant increases in their MAP scores over the academic year. These increases are proof of these children's hard work despite the odds against them.
A number of my students struggle with ADD and ADHD. These challenges make sitting still for extended periods difficult and often impossible. Though I incorporate a lot of movement within the school day, there are times students are required to sit for varying lengths of time.
Wobble chairs offer active students an alternative seating choice.
By wobbling while being seated, students can experience movement without causing a distraction or getting in trouble. Active students can feel a part of the class yet move their bodies to expend extra energy. Through alternative seating choices such as wobble chairs, the needs of all learners can be met in the classroom environment.
