Mrs. Frost from San Antonio TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students additional ball chairs to accommodate our big class of 26 students this year.
Our 3rd grade students are some of the most enthusiastically inquisitive minds we have on our campus. They thrive on learning through applied or hands-on experiences and are always very eager to explore and learn something new.
Being a Title I school with 97% of the school considered as economically disadvantaged, these opportunities for educational exposure may not always be possible for these children, who come from very hard-working families.
However, their thirst for knowledge coupled by a well-mannered curiosity to know more is our daily inspiration to make these opportunities within reach for every student in our campus. We know that with the right guidance, their hearts and minds will surely be bigger than Texas, and the world!
We have started using gym balls in my classroom six years ago in hopes to make a difference in the students' energy levels and focus. This move really helped my previous students concentrate on their tasks and look forward to coming to school. Students understand respecting and taking care of their resources and following the rules on safety so they can continue to use these fun chairs. As a result, our scores have been phenomenal compared to more traditional classroom seating. Unfortunately, the original set of 15 gym balls we received from a previous grant has shown signs of over-use from being inflated and deflated for summer storage for the past 3 school years. We need to replace the damaged ones and add more to accommodate our big class of 26 3rd graders this year so every student can continue to reap the benefits of having this innovation in the classroom.
With my 26 students back for full in-person learning in the classroom after Covid virtual school, these ball chairs can help them ease back into a full day in the classroom in a fun, engaging environment as we close in the academic and achievement gaps brought by this unprecedented pandemic.
These gym balls create an inviting atmosphere in our classroom that is proven to improve students' focus, which in return improve their concentration, behavior and overall academic performance.
We hope that you can help us bring these resources to benefit our students and enable them towards success!
