I am a 3rd grade teacher at an IB PYP school in Georgia. Students who attend this school come from diverse backgrounds, majority of those being low income households. This however, does not stop my students from giving their best. They come to school each day, eager to learn something new.
I absolutely love my school, and how it is changing the lives of students.
Here, students are encouraged to ask questions, take risks, make real world connections, and foster a love for learning that will carry into adulthood. Seeing students implement and carry out their learner profiles is amazing.
My students can REALLY benefit from various types of seating options inside the classroom. I feel that incorporating the use of bouncy bands and balance balls will keep students comfortable, and well as engaged so they are able to put forth their best work. I have already purchased a small pack of the bouncy bands to see if there was a difference with students, and it was a HIT! Students were able to bounce in their own seats without drawing attention from others.
This project will really help jump-start my flexible seating arrangements within my classroom, in hopes to expand this in the near future.
I have many students who need an outlet to get out energy in order to be more focused on the learning environment.
I am so excited to see all students have the opportunity to have a bouncy band on their chair to use each and every day, and the positive impact this will have on their academic success.
