Mrs. Lenox from Shalimar FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Kids Just Wanna Move and Learn!

Help me give my students much needed equipment, such as a trampoline, stability balls, and balance balls, which will allow them to burn excess energy for optimal focus and learning throughout the school day.

My Students

I teach first grade Science and Math to a highly energetic, enthusiastic group of students in Shalimar Florida. Our school is a Title I school in which over 65% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. I love teaching first grade because first graders are so excited to learn and are extremely eager to please. I encourage all my students to reach their full potential regardless of the obstacles they face. My classroom consists of students with various exceptionalities and abilities. In addition to the average energy level of a six-year-old, some of my students have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.

My Project

My students need exercise equipment and flexible seating to help them move and release excess energy throughout the school day. This equipment will allow my students to take breaks and exert energy in order to focus on their learning. Students will be able to jump on the exercise trampoline when they feel the urge to move.

Exercise balls will serve as flexible seating which will allow my students to bounce and get those wiggles out.

Being able to offer flexible seating will encourage appropriate movement while continuing with their learning. Having this project fulfilled will greatly impact and enhance student learning. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
