My Students

Classrooms keep getting set up more and more around the verbal and less around the kinesthetic and active -- Michael Gurian. We can change that by incorporating active seating choices for our kids.

My students attend a small, urban elementary school in a mid-sized city.

The majority of kids in the school are eligible for free or reduced price meals and typically do not have access to a great deal of technology. Aside from the lack of resources, my students have great enthusiasm for learning. We have an active running team and I love that this project will allow for my students to train their core while learning in class.

My Project

We will use the ball chair at our small group learning table. The chair will give us an option for a comfortable seat while providing a child with the opportunity to move while sitting. The ergonomic design will allow for freedom of movement and provide support for a child while also making him or her engage their core to stay sitting upright. Children with physical disabilities can also benefit from sitting on the ball chair as they work to develop better trunk control. I believe that the ball chair is just the thing for energetic fifth graders to learn while moving AND move while learning!

Supplying our classroom with this resource will allow students the opportunity to move substantially more throughout the day and promote a healthy posture.

While gaining a foundational understanding of the importance of their health, students will also experience the connection between the mind and the body!
