Mrs. Long from Boiling Spgs SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Students With Active Seating

My students need balance ball chairs to be active while learning to help them better focus during instruction and independent work.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have 50 amazing, talented, and motivational students. I love being able to see each of these students every day and helping them grow.

These students are very motivated to learn and always inspiring others.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures with so much to offer. My goal is to teach each of these students to love learning and become amazing leaders for our future. These students are so willing to learn and try new things. They make teaching such a joy and are always teaching me new things as well.

My Project

The students I share a classroom with love to be active and move around the room being able to break free from the everyday desk. By having these Gaiam Balance Ball Chairs, the students will be able to do so allowing them to focus much better. Now students in my class are moving desk with other students or finding a spot to sit on the floor. These chairs will create a much more comfortable flexible seating arrangement for the students.

With these chairs, my students will be more engaged and inspired to learn with the choice of active seating.

These chairs will provide the students with the ability to roll in place since it has wheels. They will also provide the students the opportunity to bounce using the exercise ball. Having these chairs will help create a focused and engaged environment for the students who need to get all of their wiggles out!!
