My students need 12 Flex-Space Balance Ball Seats from Lakeshore to get their wiggles out and improve their focus during independent work time and small group time.
My first grade class is made up of a variety of different races, cultures, and socioeconomic status. Some of my students have experienced homelessness and adverse home lives. The majority of my students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love math and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however I can certainly control their experience during the school day.
My students have a bundle of energy. Students will be able to choose to sit on these flexible seats during independent and small group work time. The students wiggles and bouncing will allow them to focus more on their work and listen during instruction.
It is a proven fact exercise helps students focus and produce higher academic success.
Students will be able to focus more and enjoy a flexible and fun environment. Student behavior issues will decrease. This will increase time on task and learning. I am looking forward to seeing my students excited, happier, comfortable, and ready to learn in a flexible environment.
