As a brand-new teacher, I have been a little shocked to enter this profession and find that classrooms look the exact same as when I was in second grade! Students are expected to sit in hard chairs and use broken or worn-down desks all day long. I have recently discovered that my students need to be learning in an environment that works for them. They need a space that reflects their personalities. Here are some things we know about kids: they are mobile, they have LOTS of energy, and they have limitless potential! The stools, wobble boards, and yoga balls I have chosen in this classroom make-over all allow for kids to move while focusing on schoolwork. The stools are 14 inches tall and have a convex surface on the bottom. Students can move in a way that allows them to focus without being interrupted. These stools also have incredible physical benefits: posture and core strength will be improved. Wobble boards function in a very similar way. These boards support the student with a flat surface for their feet. Similar to the stools, the wobble boards have a convex surface on the bottom that allows gentle movement while using a standing desk. Kids who are more comfortable upright can work this way! Finally, students LOVE to kick back in a comfortable spot (bean bag chair!) and read a good book. I have already purchased yoga balls and have implemented them in our classroom and seen incredible results. I have also had the chance to watch other classrooms at my school use these tools and the change they bring is well worth it! Learning is vital. Help me ensure my students get every opportunity they can !
