Mrs. Waterman from Anchorage AK is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bouncing Off The Walls

My students need 5 sit balls to create a classroom where movement is acceptable!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Educators report that exercise balls provide particular benefits to students who suffer from ADHD. These students easily lose focus and tend to fidget in their seats. The exercise balls, though, provide a release for their bottled energy and increase their ability to focus.

My third grade students attend one of the largest Title I schools in Alaska.

It is an accomplishment for many of them to just get themselves up and off to school each day. Once my kiddos are at school, safely in my classroom, I want it to be a place where they are engaged. My students are eager to learn and I would love to supply them with as much enrichment as possible.

My Project

My students love to learn, but many times are fighting the urge to get up and move around while they are supposed to be in one specific area. With the help of these "bouncing chairs" my students will be able to not only get their work done, but release their energy at the same time!

Your donation would make it possible for my students to maintain their focus on their work rather than wanting to move around.

Your help will give each one of my students the chance for a solid foundation! These items will bring excitement to their learning and will give my students the ability to concentrate on their academics that they so desperately need!
