Flexibility is important and I have always allowed my students to sit or move around the room to best meet their learning needs. In Middle school, students are filled with energy and need to move their bodies! "Mr. T, we need a break!" The end of the day is always tough, students are going from class to class just sitting and learning. We brainstormed how we can keep learning going and move at the same time. Without the use of standard "brain breaks" where we have to lose some of our already slim science time, my students realized they could have both! Many students said when they go to the gym, they love to read, so why not bring the gym to the classroom! Movement engages the mind and gets the juices flowing! These requested Wirk Ride Exercise Bike Workstation/Standing Desk, Balance Ball chairs, Wobble Stools, and a yoga mat are the perfect furniture solution for busy students in a classroom. Classes are only forty-five minutes so this furniture will allow students to keep moving while learning along the way to keep their minds and bodies working together. These movement resources will increase peer-to-peer learning by allowing students the flexibility to move around and share ideas, open their minds to investigating, keep each other motivated, and engaged. Your donations will give my students the flexibility to move and exercise while they are learning and will also allow us to use science to investigate health and compare how movement effects our learning.
