My students need eight stability balls for our classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Out with the desks! We just need 8 more stability balls for every student in our classroom to have one of his/her own. The students share during group work and reading times, but would love to benefit from the stability balls throughout the day.
My students share a classroom with an entire other grade, a difficult learning situation but we make it work.
Our school is public K-8 with less than 150 students total. We are in a high-poverty rural area that is one of the least healthy in the state.
With these eight stability balls we can eliminate the traditional desks in our classroom for good! The balls are great for posture, performing simple stretches, and perfect for those students that just can't sit still. These balls are also motivation for exercise without those traditionally inactive students recognizing what they are doing.
Fully believing in the stability ball, I have used one for the entire year and keep an extra one for any visitors to classroom.
We will continue to use them for group work and reading time, but would love to make it more of a permanent fixture in our classroom. You can help!
