Ms. Berger from Newark NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Balance Ball Chairs

My students need Stability ball chairs to increase their focus in order to learn. Working in an inclusive kindergarten setting there is such a variety of different learners and needs.

My Students

Each and every student I have is very special to me! It is my passion to make sure they all have everything they need in order for them to reach their full learning potential.

Along with being an inclusive setting, my school also located in a low socioeconomic environment, which may make it hard for my students to focus and be ready to learn at all times.

Having these balance ball chairs in our room will allow students better focusing.

My Project

Balance ball chairs can really strengthen the ability for the adverse group of learners I have in my Kindergarten class to focus. Working in a Kindergarten Inclusive setting there are many different varieties of learners and students with different needs.

Bouncing and moving on these chairs will help my students when they feel like they need to get out of their seat or just wiggle around.

Being that my students are also five they obviously have a great amount of energy every day. My students will be able to maximize their learning time and focus by moving and exerting their extra energy in these special chairs.
