Imagine yourself in a second grade classroom. Your teacher has just finished a writing mini-lesson. You have worked hard to pay attention and follow along, but your body is feeling wiggly and it isn't easy. You transition back to your seat and take out your writing notebook, look at the page and and try to recall what you just learned. All of a sudden, as your sitting, you begin to become distracted by the noises nearby. You start to look around the classroom. Your feet start moving and you are fiddling with materials in your desk. Your body can't sit still, so you get up and sharpen your pencil even though it is already sharp. You take the long way back to your chair. You sit down, but then realize that others have written much more than you. You haven't even started! You get anxious, you find it hard to sit still and you end up with your head on your desk. This scenario occurs all too often for many of our students. The more this happens, the more challenging it becomes for them to maintain their investment in learning. Research supports that teachers who create a multi-sensory learning environment may facilitate improved student ability to participate in the general education setting, resulting in maximized learning (AOTA, 2003, Polcyn & Bissell, 2005). Alternative seating options allow for fidgeting and movement in place without disrupting peers, providing a viable alternative for teachers. Alternative seating provides an outlet for movement that would ultimately disrupt the student's productivity. The donations to this project will provide all of the elementary school teachers in the district with an alternative seating option for their class.
