Marcy Kraus created a Donor’s Choose project over the summer to get funding for the stability balls. The goal of the balls is to increase the students’ movement throughout the day. The fourth graders are on a very rigorous schedule to help the students meet the benchmarks for fourth grade. While they do include brain breaks that allow them to get up and move, they don’t have the ability to do them as much as what some of the students need. The stability balls will help let out their fidgets while still staying on task at their table. The students and their families will be able to choose whether they want their fourth grader on a stability ball or on a traditional chair. The stability balls will help the students by providing an appropriate outlet for their need to move.
