My Students

Do you remember what it was like to sit in those elementary school chairs? I want to give our students the opportunity to learn while wiggling, moving, and bouncing!

My public school students are a wonderful bunch of learners.

They have a thirst for learning and becoming better students. They love to help one another and are a truly great group of students devoted to becoming better each and every day. But like most elementary students, they have energy and we need to channel that energy to aid their learning.

My Project

I am requesting a class set of balance ball chairs to help my students successfully complete their classwork without disrupting the rest of the students. The ball chairs provide support and stability while simultaneously allowing discrete movement. These specific chair balls have supports for the balls so they don't roll across the floor.

I want to provide an alternate method for all of our children to be successful.

Many of the most brilliant minds are untapped because of the external stimuli that causes them to be off task. These balance ball chairs will maximize instructional time for all students.
