Mrs. Richardson’s first grade class has received a very generous donation to use for the purchase of exercise balls for the students to use as chairs. These ball chairs have been shown to improve core muscle strength, posture, attention, focus, stamina, and student engagement in classrooms around the country. The chairs allow the students to have some wiggles and bounces without disturbing others. They force students to sit properly instead of on their knees, or tipping/rocking in their old chairs. And of course, they’re fun. Mrs. Richardson and her students have been using the chairs for a week now and they love them. They are very excited and grateful for this new classroom resource.
