My Students

Our classroom is made up of 24 active students from a variety of cultural and economic backgrounds. All students want to be comfortable while they learn. Much of our class is inquiry-based so the students work together on projects and enjoy doing so around the room.

Help my students be more successful learners!

By supporting this project, you will allow the students to stay on task by choosing where they are sitting and moving while learning. They will be able to exert their energy in a positive way by engaging their core while working.

My Project

Balance balls are a great flexible seating option for students to have. By having flexible seating options for my students, they can make the choice of what best suits their learning. By giving them a choice they are beginning to learn how to make appropriate choices to make them successful in the classroom. By having alternative seating, students have room to work by spreading out into their own space. Having alternative seating also helps with engagement. By having higher engagement students will be more successful.

By donating you will help the learning environment of our classroom by giving my students more choice.

By giving the more choice it will help empower them to make better choices and become more successful in the classroom. Having choices helps them become 21 Century learners.
