My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching twelve second graders. They love to learn, but they need materials that will keep them interested to create meaningful learning experiences.

I teach in a low socioeconomic school and unfortunately, many of the children that come through my room don't have basic supplies.

Therefore, I provide most of the materials that are needed in my room. Regardless of their background, all of the children are excited about being at school and learning new things.

My Project

I am requesting a total of six Flex-Space Balance Balls (three green and three blue) for my classroom. I am also requesting an Automatic Ball Inflator to blow up the balls and deflate them. My students need the Flex-Space Balance Balls to allow them to move and balance while improving their focus on learning.

Because the balance balls are sturdy and have five legs, they can be easily stored and moved around the room when needed.

The Flex-Space Balance Balls will be used in different learning environments. They may be used at their desk, the table, the carpet, or during independent reading times.
