These materials will make a difference in my students learning because it will give students an appropriate way to move their bodies and fidget during lessons. Often students have difficulty staying seated and focused during lessons. With these materials I hope to keep them engaged and motivated to learn while still getting out their energy! As my students come from various backgrounds, they all have different needs in the classroom. The wobble stools and kickbands will be used as a flexible seating option to keep students awake and engaged during lessons. Some students in the class do not get adequate sleep so keeping them moving is a key part in their success in the classroom. I have also included fidgets in my flexible learning. Students will use these during lessons when their hands are not busy to keep them from looking and digging in their desk to find something to fidget it. It gives them an appropriate way to fidget without being distracting. Fidgets will also be used at the "take a break" desk where students will take a few minutes to calm themselves when feeling overwhelmed or frustrated. I expect there will be a lot of frustration when trying to learn grade level content as most students are not on level or have gaps due to COVID. Most of them just want to feel safe and loved. Having materials for them to relieve stress, take a break, and move throughout the day will help meet some of their needs.
