My class is an amazing group of students that come from many different backgrounds. Some come from military families who have been on the island for less than a year while others have never been to the other side of the island in their entire life. The saying in my class is, "You can always do more, but you should never do less!" Every student is expected to rise to the challenge.
By using a technology based resource center in the science classroom, my students will be able to STEAM roll over any obstacle.
Not all of the students that walk into my class have the opportunity or the privilege to have technology at their home. For some of my students, just getting to school is a struggle. They should be able to focus on getting to school before they worry about having access to a computer or other sources of technology.
My students are often using my yoga ball to sit on during the day. It has helped many of them to focus while being able to fidget and move around. I have noticed improved class participation in the students that have been using it. By using these chairs, my students will be able to focus on their work while being able to wiggle and fidget without distracting others. This will go a long way for my students that are in need of a way to get out their energy. They will be able to use these chairs as an alternate seating choice to their regular seats.
