My students need Ball N Chairs because they are busy bodies. They need to move around! These chairs will help them release energy, while still staying focus on the lesson.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are full of energy. They will even stand there and bounce up and down! They often are getting out of their seats to walk around the room. They need these chairs to help them release energy, while they continue their work.
My students love to learn, please adults, and make good choices.
However, sometimes their bodies won't let them be still long enough to complete a task. Many of my students are living under the poverty line. Some are responsible for getting themselves to school everyday or for taking care of younger brothers and sisters. They work hard and play hard! They want to do well in school very badly. They are loving and try their best every day.
The Ball N Chair will allow my busiest students to release their extra energy by allowing them to bounce gently, while staying in their chair and completing a task. By bouncing, my students will have the ability to stay focused on the assignment without leaving their chair and running around the room, which can put others in harms way.
This project is important to my students because they strive so hard to do well in school, it's just that sometimes their bodies won't let them focus.
These chairs will truly allow them to stay focused and complete their dream of doing well in school.
