As a teacher in a Title 1 school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am trying to create a 21st century classroom that will not only benefit my students this year but encourage them to be life-long learners.
My students have the ability to make a change in their lives as well as the lives around them.
Every child is an individual and requires individual needs. Most of my students are second language learners as well as having special needs. Most struggle with self control and most struggle with anxiety. These two alone hinder their learning. I know that I can't control much, but I can control the ways in which my students can learn and making sure that they are comfortable is a necessity. I am hopeful to change their view of learning by creating a comfortable and welcoming classroom environment.
Many of my students have a tough time sitting still...many need multiple bathroom or water breaks throughout the day.
I have seen a drastic improvement in their focus since having few wobble chairs.
I have a lot of students who like to fidget or move while they work. Regular chairs don't allow them to do that. Wobble chairs allow them to move around while they learn.
It's not about what chair they're sitting in, but which seat helps them learn best!
Wobble chairs aren't cheap...and are hard to purchase alone...we need your help! According to the company that makes them, the rocking motion can be calming and organizing for the brain. It helps students pay attention.
