Ms. Elphic’s Classroom Edit display name

  • Lura Kinsey Elementary School
  • Flagstaff, AZ
  • More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households

At my school, I teach a 70-minute math block, three times a day. While I utilize centers and try to get the students up and moving as much as possible, it can be incredibly difficult to keep students engaged and focused during this time. Therefore, I am asking for a class set of stability balls, which will help students get out the wiggles, make learning more fun, and help with student focus. Many studies have shown that stability ball chairs channel their physical energy in a positive way, allowing them to focus on their work more completely and reach their full potential as learners. While I adore teaching Math, this donation would help both myself and my amazing students. They deserve a classroom that they can't wait to enter, and never want to leave.
