Flexible Seating for Flexible Learning

Help me give my students 4 stability balls as a flexible seating option to help them learn in a comfortable small group classroom setting.

My Students

In this math classroom, students enter the door eager to learn about math in hands-on ways. They love physically building multiplication arrays with pattern blocks, or singing our "We Will Round You" song to remember their rounding skills. They love working in small groups and to come up with new strategies to solve problems!

My students develop their math skills as well as their cooperation skills in our hands-on, community-centered classroom.

I have four classes of terrific ten and eleven year old students that rotate through my math classroom for an hour each day. This means I have 87 students in total! Each student is so unique, yet so valuable to our learning community.

My students come from various backgrounds, as I teach at a Title 1 School that serves students of low socio-economic families. The free-and-reduced lunch rate covers 100% of the students. In my classroom, these students have a chance to learn math in fun and memorable ways.

My Project

A cozy classroom makes a perfect learning environment! My students learn best when they are comfortable in their surroundings. In my math class, they do particularly well when they are in a smaller group setting where they do not feel scared to talk in front of the whole class.

This project's exercise ball chairs would provide the perfect small group setting where students would be comfortable sharing their answers and learning from others.

The exercise ball chairs would take the edge off, as students could bounce around to calm their nerves. Busy students could quiet their busy bodies by getting their energy out in a way that is still conducive to learning in a fun environment.
