My class has a wonderful personality and hard work ethic. They mostly come from low poverty homes and qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program. This, however, does not make them any less capable of learning and excelling in life and in school.
We love to learn and explore many different options when learning.
I love to give them the tools and experiences that they might never get a chance to have at home. I feel that given the proper tools and manipulatives, they can achieve so many incredible things. They must be able to explore and be given the opportunity like everyone else in the world.
I am asking for alternative seating in my third grade classroom. I see so many kids year after year, who can not sit still for hours in a day. Most need medication, but who wants to put their child on medicine, just because they have the wiggles? I have a few options in my classroom for alternative seating, but not enough for everyone. It is a fight everyday to see who gets to sit in the moving seats. Sometimes kids need to be able to stand, lean, rock, etc. This helps them focus and almost always helps with ADD and ADHD problems.
