Thank you for sharing so many ideas. I just wish the video had been slower and longer so I could see more of yoru room.
What behaviors do students exhibit to use the yoga balls? Are they the 55 cm or 65 cm size?
How did you attach the art to the ceiling?
Thank you for your positive comments and taking the time to post on the blog. I find that the yoga balls work best for my students that typically stand up or move around during the time they are engaged in classwork; however, all students seem to share an interest in at least "trying" the yoga balls for a day. You'll find that some students don't find them appealing at all, they prefer to sit in their assigned chair. The 55 cm size works best for the desks that I have in my classroom. You can find them at Target or Walmart for under 10 dollars.
The tessellations were created by my students and drawn directly onto the ceiling tiles. These can also be purchased 8 to 10 per pack for about $24.00 at either Lowes or Home Depot (just in case your administrator may want you to provide you own).
Have a great weekend and thanks for checking out the blog.
