Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are vivacious and learn best when engaged in cooperative learning activities. They are very animated and enjoy reading in pairs and discussing their books with partners. They are extremely excited about reading and eager to learn more about the world around them! They come from supportive families and are part of a community that values education.

My students believe in themselves and will grow up to be an important and productive part of society.

They are worth the investment!

My Project

Students learn best when they are actively engaged. They spend a lot of time in the classroom each day and I would like to foster as much movement as possible to keep their minds and bodies active. Learning shouldn't be sedentary. These balance balls will allow my students to move in constructive ways and give students who need to move a little more the opportunity to do so.

I want my students to be excited and eager to learn.

Having a variety of flexible seating choices would give students the power of choice and the freedom to expel energy in constructive ways.
