My Students

Each year I have students who are eager, energetic, and enthusiastic. My students are active learners where they come into our classroom and are able to explore, create, and collaborate. I have a diverse set of students who all learn in many different ways. One day, my students and I went into another classroom where they saw many different ways the students were able to learn. My students showed great interest and asked if we could have it as well in our classroom. So, with their idea in mind, I wanted to add balance balls and wobble chairs to my classroom.

My students are faced with different challenges at home, so from the minute they walk into my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.

I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

My students expressed their interest in having balance balls and wobble chairs in our classroom after seeing other students using them during class time. Your generous donation to our project will help my students physically as well as academically because they will be able to move their bodies while they work. It will help my students to strengthen their core, improve their balance, and improve their circulation.

This project will allow my students to be able to move while learning, as they collaborate with their peers.

By providing my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences, they will become lifelong learners.

The chairs will be rotated throughout the day to make sure that each student has a chance to get 60 minutes of activity throughout each day. I will use a timer to ensure that everyone has their 60 minutes each day.
