My students are an amazing group of first graders. Some of them come from disadvantaged households, but without a doubt, all of them have heart!
What I love about my students is their can do attitude, they never give up even when the task seems too big for them to handle.
They all look out for each other in a way I have never seen before with kids their age.
One of my students has autism and will sometimes try and escape the classroom, every single one of my students wants to help him stay with the group and will guide him to where he needs to be. They all have such empathy for each other. Our classroom community is strong.
The balance balls for my kiddos will help them concentrate when we have groups. I have some kiddos that really need to concentrate during small groups but have no options for seating that will give them the movement they need without boundaries.
I know the kids in my class and future classes will be able to use these seats for helping in concentration and helping to get the wiggles out.
I am excited to see a difference in my class. These balance balls will give students new options and I know it will help them in ways beyond the classroom.
