My Students

Why are my students special?! They are special because despite their circumstances, they come to school everyday ready to learn! My students are definitely not ones to try to fit in. They are stars and were born to stand out! They are eager, energetic, and appreciative of every day they have the opportunity to come to school. Their love of learning is contagious and they make everyone around them happy. I wish everyone had the chance to know and love them!

My Project

The balance balls will allow my students to have flexible seating options, which will allow for a more flexible learning style. The flexible seating will allow students to move and balance to reduce restlessness and improve focus while learning.

The balance balls will be used in various areas around the classroom, to allow student choice.

This choice allows them to choose where they work and with whom. When students are in control of their own learning, they feel more empowered. Flexible seating also brings a sense of community and collaboration to the classroom. Students become less territorial of their space and are more engaged with their class mates. Flexible seating is also just plain fun!
