Classroom Seating

Help me give my students the wobble cushions. These will help with ADHD and hopefully keep students more attentive and focused on tasks.

My Students

I have a diverse group of 7th grade students. I teach World Geography to about 100 students a day, in addition to an Enrichment class and Yearbook class. We have a large number of bilingual Hispanic students. I love teaching my kiddos. They are so full of life and energy! We live in northwestern Oklahoma and many of my students have family members in the oilfield. My teens love their cell phones and social media, making teaching harder. They have a need to constantly be entertained or moving.

I love teaching my geography students about the world around them and how to be good citizens of the world.

I also teach an enrichment class. We are currently covering "real world knowledge" about college, budgeting, and debt, as well as studying the brain and what Growth Mindset is. I want my students to feel like we've prepared them for the real world!

My Project

Studies have shown that male students have difficulty sitting straight in desks because of the shape of their tailbones. Many classrooms have begun to use air cushions on their seats to help students sit up straighter and they have been proven to help students with ADHD. In a world where media has taught students that they have to be constantly entertained, many who are not diagnosed with ADHD also have trouble learning to sit still. These cushions will also aid with that. I have a few fidget toys already in use in my classroom and they are definitely helpful for those usually disrupt class by tapping or drumming.
