My Students

The students in my class are very sweet and they are hard workers, My students are culturally diverse and come from many different life experiences. My students range from gifted to struggling students, with everyone in-between. My student love things that are hands on and they love to move.

Many of my students have ADHD tendencies.

My students often have difficulty sitting while they are working. Sometimes students stand up, but I find they are distracting one another with their constant movements.

.

My Project

The addition of Balance Ball Chairs to our classroom will help my student stay on task as they work. These chairs will allow for my students to move to get out their wiggles. Many of my students have ADHD characteristics, and have a need to fidget or move constantly.

These special chairs will allow my students to move without distracting other students.

I am hopefully that this type of

alternative seating will improve my students's focus. I am looking forward to seeing a positive change in my students's attention and grades. Also, I know that my students would think these chairs are cool!
