Help me give my students active Learning Chairs for a fun educational setting where they have a choice in seating.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach students with a variety of learning needs. Many of my students are served for academic reasons, but most have a specific learning disability that makes learning more difficult for them. These students have an abundance of energy and are sometimes overwhelmed by a typical classroom setting with desks and chairs.
Students have many different ways of showing their unique personalities.
Many grew up on small farms and have been instilled with a hard-working mentality. These students enjoy movement and hands-on activities to help them learn. Therefore, flexible seating is an important step in providing my students with the tools that they need to be successful in the classroom environment.
Many students with learning disabilities have difficulty sitting in a typical classroom environment. Creating a learning environment for them with these requested Active Learning Chairs will improve their ability to focus on lessons and make them feel more comfortable in the process.
Students' ability to focus during learning is key to their success in the typical classroom.
The alternative seating options I have requested will allow the student more ability to fidget, move, and release energy in a way that is not disruptive to other students.
Research shows that the increase in physical activity for students leads to more on-task behaviors and improved academic success. Bouncing and moving while seated is a simple alternative to help active students.
