My Kinder-babies need to move! They have a lot of energy at this age and need to release it in a way that keeps them focused. Thanks to the Wobble Chairs my young learners can do just that! They will be able to sit with me in a small group to focus on their skills and not have to worry about the energy their body is naturally exerting. The Wobble Chairs will give them the physical release which stimulates their minds as they focus and learn. Flexible-seating gives students the best of both worlds, physical and mental, leading to a comfortable, engaging, student-centered classroom full of energetic learners. Many times students just need to get the wiggles out in order to focus. The seats will help them stay on task, focus on their learning, and become more independent in self-regulation. Even at their young age, children can learn to control their physical urges in order to focus on a given task. The chairs will help them do this so that movement doesn't become a distraction but they can learn how to remain focused through the urges. This will help them in their future as they develop into strong learners that can grow academically as they move!
