Do you remember going to school and having to sit in a hard chair all day? You might have been the student who would have to constantly move around and readjust. Or maybe you were one of the students who liked to rock on the two back legs of the chair. (And get told to stop rocking because it's dangerous!) Whatever the case may be, hard chairs can become uncomfortable and take away from students focus and learning.
My students are smart, eager to learn and have lots of energy!
All of this energy can sometimes become a problem when it comes time to stay focused and on task. A few of my students are diagnosed with ADHD. These students especially like to move around and rock back and forth on the chairs' legs. This is a safety hazard, and is not ideal for my students.
The furniture that I am requesting will be used daily! My students are active elementary schoolers who don't like sitting still. Even though my students will be moving and wiggling around, I believe that this will help them stay focused and interested! It will also help to keep them safe as these chairs are made to be rocked.
Investing in this project will help meet the needs of my students, especially those with ADHD who have a hard time sitting still.
Thank you for the consideration and help! I can't wait to see the looks on my students' faces when they are given this option.
