My Students

My students have a love for learning and are eager to try new things. The children attending my school are from a large inner city neighborhood with 100% of the students receiving free meals daily. The neighborhood in which they live is a high poverty area with people of diverse backgrounds.

My fifth grade classroom has students from many different countries, others in need of learning/behavior support, and students receiving support with life skills.

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." -Ignacio Estrada

My Project

The use of collaborative teams to enhance student learning is a daily occurrence in my classroom. Unfortunately our old furniture isn't as inviting and comfortable for longer team projects. We're often moving around heavy, clunky furniture to different areas of the classroom to create group spaces.

I'd like to give my students a super-inviting place to collaborate—with four cozy chairs and a low-to-the-ground table!

How fun would it be to sit in comfy chairs and use a low to the ground table to plan your next project? Also the durable bounce ball seats will allow students to move and balance—reducing restlessness and improving focus while they learn.

I want to make sure that the bounce ball chairs are properly inflated therefore, purchasing the suggested inflating device will maximize the bounce seats' performance.
