Children spend a great number of hours in the classroom and are asked to sit still and focus. For eight- and nine-year-olds this is a difficult feat. I want to give my students the tools they need to maximize their learning potential! Research has shown that students make significant gains in attention and reading from stimulating movement. One way students can obtain this movement in the classroom is by sitting on wobble stools while they read. I only have about 15-20 minutes each day to meet with leveled small reading groups so I need to make sure that time is maximized. By sitting on wobble stools while meeting with these groups, students will be stimulated through movement and will be engaged in the work we are doing for this short time. An additional benefit of these stools will be use throughout the rest of the school day in other curricular areas such as math, science, and writing. Because they are small and light-weight they can be moved to individual student desks as needed throughout the day. They will be a versatile addition to our classroom.
