My Students

Our school district has always tried to be a leader in the world of education. We were some of the first to adopt a one to one plan, putting ipads in the hands of all our students in hopes they would each have individualized learning and challenges that met their needs. In our district, we don't allow income status to be a barrier for student learning, we do all we can to balance the scales and ensure that every child receives quality education. This year, my students will be challenged even further with real life problem solving tasks, excellent reading selections, and individualized challenges in every academic area.

Each year, I have students who come to me with attention challenges and trouble sitting still.

This year I have placed a few different types of seats in our classroom to replace the typical hard seats we have and the kids have responded very well to the change. We have discovered that the ball chairs with backs on them are most beneficial to provide exercise and encourage focus. We only have two and I would love to get at least two more.

My Project

These exercise chairs will allow students to keep moving in class and focus their attention on the tasks at hand. They will look forward to coming to sit at their seat rather than dread the hard traditional chair that greets them now.

I have two of these chairs currently and the kids LOVE them.

They work well in groups, during test taking, and while following along with direct instruction. I have one student who kept crawling on and under his desk because he just couldn't sit still during instruction, but when he is on this ball chair he just bounces and volunteers during our lessons.
