Motivating Moving Young Minds!
My students need four exercise balls to help maintain time on task and attention while learning.
I have several students in my classroom who are very mobile and love to move around. However, moving around is not always feasible.
My first grade students are in a rural, farm town.
My school receives Title I funding, and well over half of the students receive free and reduced lunch. The students are fantastic- they come to school motivated and ready to learn with a lot of energy.
My students will use the four exercise balls to sit on during instruction, independent learning, and paired instruction. My vision is to eventually equip my entire classroom with the balls, so ALL of my students are consistently on task and working, in order to keep up with the demands of the rigorous content I am teaching.
My project will make a difference because currently I have several students who get off task while learning because they need to be moving around.
The balls will help the students with their need to move, and they will still be engaged in my teaching.
