My Students

Love working in small groups of my students, to help them grow, and become the best student they can be. I want to see them grow and move on from being learning disabled. Providing an option in seating, to help them with their focus and getting wiggles under control, so they can learn, is my focus.

Many in special education are ADHD and may not be medicated.

Some run out of or forget to take their medication, so are unable to control their behavior or attentiveness. With this, students lack the ability to stay focused and fall further behind. Active seating would reduce the wiggles and promote a better, supportive learning environment.

Intended outcomes would be for students to attend to instruction in the Student Support Center, in small groups, and have a better understanding of the instruction from their classroom. Other opportunities are some students can take an active seating piece back to the classroom, if needed. Those students not functioning at grade level and need a small group, my classroom, can provide comfortable spaces and seats that allow them to choose how they work. There are about 18-20 students who come to the Student Support Center for help.

My Project

These bean bag chairs, first and foremost, will offer my students the option in how and where they sit and learn. In my classroom, various seating spaces and seats, such as various types bean bag chairs, would allow the students to use their energy in a productive manner and not interrupt instruction. In previous years, borrowing different types of seating items, such as wiggle seats, exercise balls, and standing desks, has proven to be just what active students need to be successful. Providing bean bag chairs from School Specialty will add more variety and choices for students in the Student Support Room.
