Welcome to Third Grade! » Stability Balls
This year, students in my classroom will have the opportunity to earn a stability ball (yoga ball) to use as a chair. In order to do so, students need to complete the lessons, participate in activities, and pass a test. It's hard work! Here's what the students learned about:
-Stability Ball History
-Benefits of Sitting on the Ball
-Rules and Care of a Stability Ball
Once students passed the test, they signed a contract agreeing to follow the rules. Our class rules for the stability balls are:
1. Keep your bottom on the ball.
2. Keep your feet on the floor.
3. Treat the ball as a chair.
4. Respect the ball.
5. Keep sharp, dangerous objects away.
If students break a rule, they lose their stability ball for one week. If the misbehavior happens while a substitute is here, they will lose it for two weeks.
