Kinston School Educational Foundation recently granted Mrs. Annette Presley and Mrs. Crystal Hawthorne’s Teacher Grant Request.

Mrs. Presley and Mrs. Hawthorne researched stability balls as an alternative for classroom seating. Their research showed that this type “seating improves both student performance and student behavior. It allows for movement in the classroom which has been shown to have a positive effect on student learning. Stability ball seating is especially successful for students who have been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD because the allowance of movement eliminates the students need to fidget and lose concentration on school work.”

We commend their innovative thinking!

As seen in the photos below, the stability balls have been purchased and placed in their classrooms.
