Kindergarten students have so much energy! Their bodies are little and they have the desire to move; their bodies were not created to sit still for a long period of time at a table! Being asked to sit still while working is very difficult for many 5-6-year-olds. Their bodies were made to move and exert their energy! Participating in active seating by using a wobble chair will help these kids learn while meeting the energy needs of their bodies! By giving my students the option of active sitting while at the table, they are determining a seating arrangement which best helps them to learn! Research has indicated that students who are allowed to move a little while learning can focus better, hold attention longer, and improve concentration, all of which support higher academic achievement! I can't wait to see the excitement on my students' faces when they are first introduced to wobble chairs!
