Ms. Carney from Arlee MT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Beat It! Just Beat It!

My students need exercise balls to use for strength, balance and stability activities, and when we add sticks we can move rhythmically through drumming and dancing.

My Students

My school is located on the southern tip of our reservation. We are predominately Native American but also a bedroom community to a larger city. 100% of our students receive free lunch and breakfast each day in order to make learning a high priority.

My students do not get new equipment often.

They would love having new equipment for learning to dance and move their bodies. However due to financial cut backs in the past 15 years, my budget has been zero.

My Project

This year my students would like to expand our fitness and our movement and rhythm lessons. In order to do that I would need would need equipment for all students. It would ensure that I am not leaving any students on their behinds during activities and we could even be part of school assemblies. I find that when all students are active there is less opportunity to become bored and distracted.

Just imagine, my students and I getting our groove on in PE when we receive an entire class supply of exercise balls and drum sticks!

It would rock our world!!
