I would like to invest in exercise balls for our classroom instead of traditional desk chairs. When my students are in class, they are easily distracted because they have no way of exerting energy while sitting in an uncomfortable desk chair. Research has shown that having exercise balls in a classroom increases concentration, and decreases restlessness and distraction. The tiny movements that children make while sitting on exercise balls stimulates their brain and helps them to focus, especially those with learning disabilities. This will benefit my classroom as a whole. There will be less issues within the classroom because students now have a discreet way of exerting built up energy that would otherwise cause an outburst or distraction to others. It will also benefit my students because they will be more focused and will learn more than they would when in traditional seating, which will ultimately lead to them reaching their full potential. Not only are the exercise balls helpful with keeping students focused and on track, but they are fun! They are not a distraction, but a motivator within the classroom. Students are more likely to want to participate in classroom activities that take place at their desks if their seat is an exercise ball!
