Help me give my students an alternative option to traditional classroom desk and chair seating.
Imagine walking into school on the first day with only the clothes on your back. This picture is a reality for many of the students I teach in this high needs district. In addition to not having needed school supplies, some have special needs.
Giving these students the best educational opportunities is my primary goal.
This year, I have the pleasure of working with twenty eager young third graders, six of whom have special needs. Working in this situation, I spend a great deal of my own money on the basic supplies these kids need, leaving little that I can use for extra special projects. This is why I am applying for a project grant, to give them the things they need to be successful.
We all know that everyone learns differently, especially children. We also know that we work the best when we are the most comfortable. This is true of children just as much as it is true of adults.
Being able to provide my children with alternative seating options in the classroom will allow them work in a way that is the most comfortable for them.
My experience with using flexible seating for the past five years is that my students function at their best when they are not confined to a traditional chair and desk arrangement. These ball chairs would allow me to provide them with an alternative seating option.
