My Students

The student body is one that faces economic struggles and hardships. The entire student body receives free breakfast, while over 75% receive free/reduced lunch. Furthermore, the students are faced with challenging home life and social situations, which can sometimes make it difficult to keep students truly engaged and interested in their own learning. While having these struggles, the student's efforts have still helped the school receive an "A" school status. I'm hoping through use and the engagement of new classroom tools and/or resource, my students will continue to make strides to reach their full potential.

My Project

The goal of this project is to meet the sensory needs of the children in my third grade classroom. These chairs are meant to let children work off energy while still attending to a lesson. Recent studies in the May 2013 NAEYC Journal have published findings that report young children have "neurological processes that help them organize information and respond to their environment. The way in which each child responds to this sensory information is related to sensory integration. " (Lynch and Simpson 2004) I will use these chairs in my small group areas, so that students can wiggle a little without disturbing the other children in the group.

I blend instruction with frequent brain breaks and use movement to stimulate their minds and bodies.

However, students still need to stimulate their senses during lessons and the Kore Wobble Chairs would help with that because the chairs need to stay balanced. Integrating these sensory tools into the classroom will make a big difference in their daily learning activities.
