I teach Math 7 general and special education. My classroom is small but holds around 28-30 students every class. They are required to sit for 7 hours a day, which is hard enough as an adult. They are hard working and fun loving kids. They bring such a diverse community into one small room. They love working together and exploring learning as a community. They are active and joyful students who are challenged everyday. They grow through the year to become true mathematicians.
I teach 5 math classes of approximately 29 students each. My students are required to sit for 7 hours a day which is a big transition from their elementary school. That’s hard to do as an adult, let alone as a child. When a child sits for this long, they find it difficult to focus and stay on task. They need fidget space to let their brains expand. With these balance balls, students can wiggle and get their energy out without disrupting their learning or the learning of others. With limited space, these seats will fit easily against a desk and allow for room for the teachers to move as well. These could help to cut down on the amount of students out of their seats or taking unnecessary bathroom and water breaks.
