From Movement to Success...Let's Get the Ball Rolling!

My students need balance balls and balance discs to sit on.

My Students

Should classrooms today look the same as classrooms 100 years ago? As our society and goals change, so should our education!

My students love to learn and I want to provide the best learning environment possible for each student.

They need to be able to move while they work and get the oxygen flowing! Studies show that students preform better when they are able to move and get exercise during the day. My students learn in different ways and some students need to be able to move to focus.

My Project

Students will have a choice to use an exercise balance ball, or a balance ball that sits on their chair instead of a traditional chair. Not every student will choose one of these options. For the students that do though, it will make a huge difference. Having this option will allow them to have a choice in the way they learn. When children have a choice in their learning, they are more invested. Not to mention the ability to get the wiggles out while they learn!

Having these resources for students who need them will cut down on distractions and interruptions.

It gives students an opportunity to have choice in their education and be more focused and successful.
