Active Seating for Active Scholars

My students need wobble stools to help them get their wiggles out and focus on creating their best work.

My Students

My Kindergarten scholars are in their first year of their Dual Language Immersion education. Approximately half of our class is a native Spanish speaker and the other a native English speaker. We are all learning in a bilingual, biliterate, and multicultural classroom.

Our scholars do not have much at home, but they give their all as part of our class.

Eighty-six percent of scholars qualify for a free/reduced-price lunch. About a quarter of our class stays late after school as part of our child care program through The YMCA.

My Project

Our class was lucky to win a wobble stool from an after school PD that I was able to attend recently. I decided to assign it to a scholar that had been really struggling with keeping her hands to herself and focusing on her work. We discussed the expectations that come with the privilege of using the stool as a class. Within the first day, there was a difference in her behavior. She was no longer a distraction for other and herself because she needed to focus some energy on sitting on the stool. She has completed all work since she has been using the stool.

Being able to focus on rigorous tasks should not be a privilege, but our class is currently limited so that is it.

If we were to receive these stools, our students would be greatly benefited by them. Struggling students will be able to work efficiently and to their full capabilities.
