Mrs. Antecol from Weston FL is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bouncing for Books!

My students need 8 exercise balls and a pump to use instead of chairs during small reading groups. This will help them stay focused on the lessons.

My Students

In today's fast paced world, students have many sources of stimulation and instant gratification. They are expert multi-taskers and often have trouble concentrating on just one thing. Exercise balls allow students a slight bit of movement in their bodies while still sitting and paying attention.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, many from Spanish-speaking countries.

They live busy lives. They participate in after school activities, have siblings who are busy, have parents who both work full time. They are eager to learn and eager to please. They are delightful and interesting.

My Project

My students will use the eight exercise balls I have requested during small reading groups. They will sit on the exercise balls instead of chairs. This will give those wiggly students a bit of movement, while still allowing them to pay attention to the book and to the lesson. The balls reinforce good posture and balance as well.

Your donation to this project will make my classroom more focused on the students of the future and the ways different children learn.

It will change my students' lives for the better because they will improve both their posture and their concentration.
