My students need a complete set of 16 therapy ball chairs to assist them with their ability to fully attend in class.
Through DonorsChoose and many generous donors, our class was able to purchase 6 therapy ball chairs to test the theory that children will be able to attend better in class if they are given the opportunity to move in their seats.
My class is an awesome group of fifth graders who work very hard.
They are creative and caring, and I would like to make their time at school as enjoyable as possible. We work hard, but we find time each day to laugh as well! We are a K-5 school in suburban New York.
After we received the 6 therapy ball chairs from generous donations and DonorsChoose, my class has been so excited. We have been rotating the chairs weekly so all kids get the benefit of sitting on them. We have seen a change in the children being able to better pay attention when they are seated on the ball chair. We would like to complete a class set of 22 so all children may sit on the ball chair each day.
We have seen a marked improvement in a child's ability to attend to material when they are seated on the ball chair.
Please help us to provide one for each student so our improved attention can become more permanent.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
