Moving to Learn

My Students

Unique, creative, intelligent, and energetic are a few words that come to mind when I think of my students. My class is a dynamic group of fifth graders. My students consist of all learning abilities and enjoy learning through different learning modalities. They are excited about moving around the room and learn best while relaxed and engaged.

They are the future - future engineers, doctors, lawyers, and more.

I want to give them the best opportunity at success by providing them with a relaxed learning environment that will best allow their brains to engage and be open to learning.

My Project

By donating to my project, my students will be able to move in their seats, releasing energy, so they can better focus. They will be able to use these yoga balls at their seats or at the back table in small groups. I have some students with special needs that have difficulty focusing and these balls will allow them to do so.

If you support our project, my class will be able to move and learn at the same time.

My students will be building their brains and encouraging better posture. There's nothing better than calm brains to retain new information.
