Most of the students that come to the computer lab do not have a computer at home. Students are lacking basic technology skills. As a computer lab teacher at a Title 1 school, there are certain things needed to progress in the classroom. I've had the opportunity to teach and observe those things over the past two years at our school.
One day while teaching a kindergarten class, I noticed a little boy that continuously disrupted the class.
I wasn't mad at him but knew that I lacked certain resources in my computer lab to help him.
Extra stimulation to concentrate is highly needed in the classroom to meet the needs of students. It is also needed to allow them to have a growth mindset. I love to see my students show progress, especially when they have the proper resources.
The wobble cushions will be placed on select chairs in the computer lab for a more attentive learning atmosphere. Students that have a short attention span will greatly benefit from it. It will also benefit all the students from kindergarten to grade 5. This would present a warm, kid-friendly, and relaxed learning environment. I believe when you are comfortable, your mindset is more focused on the assignment and you are able to achieve the objective at hand. My students will be more engaged in their assignments and less focused on any distractions such as their peers, sounds and movements that could possibly cause them to lose focus. The materials will also benefit all students with a much more engaging learning environment, changing their mindset to excellence.
