Mrs. Brennan from Charlotte NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bounce Into Learning

My students need flexible seating options in order to get some of their excess energy out during the day while they are working on academic tasks.

My Students

My students are hard workers with a passion for learning. They come to school every day ready to grow and expand upon their knowledge.

My students are from all different cultural backgrounds.

They have a diversified and wide range of needs to meet their learning schema. Our school is on the verge of being a title 1 school, and many of our students have social-emotional needs, outside of their academic needs.

My students are an inspiration because they are the future leaders of our country. They make my job purposeful and worthwhile.

My Project

These yoga balls will improve my students' learning because they will be able to sustain their attention for longer periods of time by using the balls to channel some of their extra energy. At such a young age, I do not expect my students to sit at their desk all day long. As an adult, I know that I have difficulty sitting in uncomfortable seating and being asked to listen and pay attention, so I can only imagine how difficult that is for a tiny human.

These yoga balls will provide my students the outlet that they need in order to be more successful.
