My students need Gaiam Balance chairs and wobble cushions to help them focus in class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My thirty-nine kindergarteners are in the Extended Foreign Language Spanish program at an elementary school in a low-income area in the heart of Miami, Florida, where ninety-eight percent of the students are Hispanic and more than eighty percent are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.
Despite their economic challenges, these fun-loving 5 and 6-year-olds are at that wonderful stage where they are eager to learn and are inquisitive.
My students are active, hands-on kids who love to learn through experience.
These Gaiam Balance chairs and wobble cushions will help my students release their energy while staying on task at the same time. These chairs will be for those students who learn "differently". The students will benefit those children who can't stay still for long periods of time or need to move in order to focus better. I have bought one chair already, which students have been sharing. I have already seen a difference. The students are calm and staying on task. Their brains and body are functioning at the same time and they are not getting in trouble. These students are allowed to move while seated.
