Ms. Prescott from Reading PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engage the KORE, Engage the MIND

Help me give my students Kore wobble chairs to provide them with an opportunity to rock while sitting, encouraging their bodies to move, which will help strengthen their core muscles and encourage them to focus on learning!

My Students

My students are inherently curious and creative individuals who each have a unique perspective on the way the world works.

An important part of my time with my students is helping them to realize how wonderful their perspectives are and offering each of them opportunities to shine!

Having the support of the DonorsChoose community has been a game changer for my students. It is important that we have just the right materials on hand for a top-quality education that my students deserve. Beyond material goods, the knowledge that a larger community believes in my students and in me as their guide along their learning journey is encouraging as my students make steps toward a big, bright future of their making.

Thank you for your part in my students' success.

My Project

It's hard on a young active body, one that just wants to move, to passively sit in a hard chair throughout the entirety of their school day.

Kore wobble chairs will help my students to actively sit by providing them with the ability to rock, thereby helping to strengthen their core muscles and allow them to focus their energy on learning!

When students have an opportunity to be active during the day, they are more productive and feel better. Obesity rates in our country are forever growing. We as teachers need to continue to figure out ways to help our students learn how to become healthier versions of themselves. The Kore wobble chair was designed with the exercise ball in mind. I know that my students would benefit both physically and academically with wobble chairs in our classroom.
