This year I have classroom full of 4th grade students who are open-minded and always looking for more! We are very eager to take a trip of a lifetime into a world we choose, just by simply reading a good book!! Reading allows us to imagine a world we’ve never known and it frees us from our daily worries and struggles! We are so happy Donors Choose has decided to allow a few days for matched donations just for books!!! We love Donors Choose and are hopeful that we will receive your help today!!
Teachers (and now researchers) are finding that allowing students choice and movement in their seating arrangements can greatly improve behavior and academic performance. My project will help increase the learning of our students, especially those who are considered at-risk based on ethnic backgrounds, needs abilities, etc. These exercise ball chairs will be used daily by a total of 38 students. The students love the ones we currently have and show a lot more enthusiasm during our reading each day!
Some of the immediate benefits of flexible seating, exercise ball chairs, include burning more calories, using up excess energy, improving metabolism, increased motivation and engagement, creating a better oxygen flow to the brain, and improving core strength and overall posture.
It's no surprise that physical activity is linked to higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior!
