I work in an inclusive fourth grade classroom. All 25 of my students receive their education in one room. This is a great setting for some students as they are able to feel as though they are just like their peers but are also receive the instruction that is necessary for them to succeed and progress. I co-teach with another professional which helps to make this possible. Although our classroom model is great, there are many needs without our classroom.
One of the biggest lessons I want my students to learn is to be a good person.
Throughout the year character development, social emotional learning, kindness and respect are taught and reinforced. Students also learn to take pride in their work, work hard and understand what they need as learner to be successful.
Many of my students need movement built into their day to be successful. Our classroom has movement built into it throughout the day but there are times students have to sit and be still. Some students in my classroom have a hard time during these parts of the day.
Core engagement stools will help my students to sustain their focus during times when they have to sit still.
The stools will allow their bodies to have some movement during those times when they have to sit still. These stools will allow my students one more option to reach success in my classroom.
