Mrs. Guillen’s Classroom Edit display name

Everything I do in my classroom is based off research I have done and best practices I have found for my students. I have recently discovered quite a bit of research that shows the benefits of movement in the classroom to enhance student engagement. Elementary students are very active, and need to be provided with learning environments that meet their needs. Changing traditional classroom chairs to stability balls and cushions will give my students a more appropriate and beneficial learning environment. Incorporating movement throughout the school day will make students more focused on the learning, and will lessen distracting behavior issues. The new seating options will assist me in promoting physical education and a positive learning environment. I am hopeful that these stability balls and cushions will help my students burn excess energy, increase oxygen flow to the brain, improve core strength, create higher academic performance, and overall better health.
