My students need balance balls and a dry-erase table to provide a way to work together that is flexible and efficient. Middle school students are often tall and they need more room to move their legs. Their current student's desk are too small.
My students are 7th and 8th graders who come to my class every say eager to learn Spanish. These students are hard working and inquisitive. They come from many different backgrounds each adding diversity and personality to my classroom.
The Spanish program is very important in our district because the students are given the opportunity to earn a high school credit once they successfully complete 7th and 8th grade Spanish.
My students are always asking questions and love to practice and learn a new language. It is exciting to be their teacher each and every day.
Students are able to work in groups and jot down their ideas right on their table. No more looking for pencils and paper!!
Students will be using this new table and bouncy chairs to learn cooperatively.
The table also offers a white board surface which I would use for quick assessments and comprehensions checks.
The bouncy ball allow for students with ADD/ADHD to move their bodies while still able to concentrate on the task on hand.
Students would rotate using this special table and be assigned a bouncy ball as needed. I would love to have this table and bouncy balls available in my classroom as soon as possible.
