Best Seat in the House!

Help me give my students the best seat in the house! These chair bands will help my students get their move on without the distraction of being out of a seat.

My Students

Each day over 180 students come through my math class. Each student is unique and contributes positively to our class. One thing that most (if not all) my students need is the ability to move while working.

These large chair bands will allow my students to meet their need for movement while still working with their group.

All our brains working together can solve more problems than working alone. If one group member can't participate, then the whole group and class loses out.

You donation will ensure that my students' fantastic brains get to work together!

My Project

Middle school days can mean a lot of sitting for students. As much as we know movement is important for students, trying to fit it into a 50 minute period (along with teaching math) can be difficult. I want to purchase large chair bands so my students have options while sitting. Students can simply rest their feet on it, or bounce to their heart's content while still participating in out math class.

These bands will allow students movement while still learning math!

I want to give my students as many options as possible to make their middle school experience a positive one. Once this project is funded 180 students will have access to these bands every day.
