My students need 6 ball chairs to help them to concentrate when they are struggling to stay on task.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Think back to the days when you were sitting in class for nearly 8 hours. It is VERY DIFFICULT to sit for that long! Third grade kids need to have a little something to keep them going, these ball chairs will keep them upbeat and ready to keep going!
My students are 8 and 9, and they are active.
It is hard to have active kids during work time and lesson time. They try their best and I want to reward them with a fun way to sit during work time. Our school is such a fun atmosphere and I think this will really add to the excitement of learning.
Using ball chairs will benefit my students in so many ways. It is good for them to stay active as they can move on the chairs. It is good for strengthening their ab muscles and keep them vigorous throughout the day. It improves blood circulation and helps their balance as well. All this and more is happening when they just think they GET to sit on the fun ball chair! I'd love to get 20 of these, but can use 6 now to rotate between students so they get a feel for them and learn to use them correctly.
I have had these ball chairs in the past and noticed a difference in my kids and their work habits.
I really think it will improve the atmosphere in our room and they will continue with their love for learning while staying active!
