My students need five Kore Wobble chairs to increase their focus during small group instruction.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
For a lot of kids, sitting still is hard work! It can take a lot of brainpower to remain stationary and safe for children that have ADHD...or just a lot of energy!
My students are bright, vibrant, and full of energy.
There is a wide range of personalities and abilities in my classroom, but all of my students have at least one thing in common: they deserve the best instruction in the best environment possible. My students attend a wonderfully warm, welcoming school, but this high-poverty community just doesn't have the resources to update classroom furniture.
I am committed to providing quality small-group instruction to all students, but that setting can be challenging for children who struggle to sit still. The brainpower those kids use in an effort to sit still and follow the rules should be channeled instead into their reading and math instruction! These chairs will allow students to move without distraction or danger - no more tipped chairs! - and to focus on their work.
Wobble chairs will allow my students to feel comfortable and safe in my classroom.
They will allow more energy to be spent learning to love reading and math than struggling to fit into an environment not suited to student needs.
