My Students

I have a classroom of 22 students. Each and every one of them shine in a different way. Most of them love hands-on, engaging lessons. This keeps them focused and moving, which they need!

The environment in which they learn best varies.

Many of my students need to move around often, which is why I incorporate partner work, group work, brain breaks and flexible seating when necessary. I truly have a diverse group, which challenges me in the best way possible. We are all working together to make the classroom a great one!

My Project

I am asking for 12 balance balls to use in my classroom. I have 22 students, therefore each student would be able to use a balance ball on average, about every other day. I have conducted a lot of research on balance balls and have found that they have many benefits.

Research proves that these balance balls can help children reach their full potential in the classroom.

They serve as fidget tools and can help strengthen back muscles, as well as improve behavior and write words more clearly. I truly believe that many of my students in my classroom would benefit from using these balance balls.
