Seating Balls Part 2

My students need seating balls to help them focus and improve student learning.

My Students

My students have a hard time sitting still and I would love to have seating balls instead of uncomfortable chairs for my students to sit in.

My students come from bad home lives where they don't know if they will eat when they go home or where they will sleep.

My school has over 85% free and reduced lunch students. My students are smart and sweet but need more of a push when it comes to academics.

My Project

My students will use these seating balls everyday and all day. They will use these seats instead of chairs. I hope to get rid of all my chairs after this donation. There has been research done that prove the increase in student engagement and learning when students sit on chair balls instead of chairs. Also, using chair balls will help me keep my students safe so they won't be leaning on them and they wont be falling off of them.

This will change my students life for the better because some of my students suffer from ADHD and ADD and sitting on the chair balls will help them stay focused.

Therefore, this will help their learning, increase higher test scores, and help prepare them for the future.
