Being able to provide multiple apparatuses (exercise balls, standing desks, and desks with movement bars) that promote movement in my classroom will lead to better student focus, which will lead to better understanding of academics. Many of my students stand to work or walk around the room working on clipboards. As educators, we know that expecting a student to sit for any length of time is typically disengaging. Movement not only promotes better focusing but movement is healthy! Allowing student choice of which apparatus to use in order to fulfill their need for movement provides individualization and control. The students will be able to choose the height of their desk and stool, as well as, whether they sit on an exercise ball or a typical chair. Most students at this level understand what it takes for them to focus. I am hoping to provided those means!
