This is a very energetic group of kiddos that love to move! Unfortunately with testing grades, moving around is not always an option. However, wobble chairs allow movement while working, and this can make a world of difference for a great portion of these students. My hopes are that it will keep my easily distracted students more focused and less frustrated with their ability to perform. It's amazing how quickly their attitude towards learning can shift with just a simple (I'll admit, pricey) change in seating. Kids need and deserve options. I do not wish to see kids sitting in desks for hours at a time, but when it's time to sit, I want them to still feel that desire for learning.
