My Students

My students are amazing! They are second graders learning Spanish as their second language in an immersion setting. We learn all second grade content but completely in the second language (Spanish). No translating here! They work hard all day to comprehend and produce Spanish in all learning aspects!

My favorite moment is when I explain something and they literally say, "OOOOOO"!

It is the moment when they comprehend and learn that they shine brightest! Their smiles and that "OOOO" moments make me love teaching in Spanish even more.

We have a wonderful school but we are a new program and we have spent much of our budget on books and curriculum. I am looking for some help to grow our students as learners!

My Project

My kids focus so hard on comprehending the Spanish language. I have seen that the harder they need to focus, the more they are moving and wiggling their bodies! We have had many problems with tipping chairs and leaning on desks.

My students need to relieve the stress of learning a new language through moving their bodies appropriately!

I want to support their need to move in a healthy and appropriate manner. These balance balls would be used specifically for my students who show need to move during class and learning time. I would also use them as extra seating during my small group reading center if they are not already being used.
