My Students

My students are energetic and eager to be involved in the classroom lessons and programs. Many of my students have experienced adverse childhood experiences, which can often be seen in over-activity and acting out behaviors. As a school focused on being trauma sensitive, these classroom tools will allow students who have experienced these traumas to have productive ways of releasing their energy. Many of my students don't yet have an understanding of how their upbringing or early childhood experiences effect them, which often leads to self-mislabeling as a bad child. I'd love to find ways to incorporate trauma sensitive thinking by giving them materials to be active and still learn. Many students need tactile fidgets or manipulative to get their energy and enjoying regulated during lessons. By incorporating these kinds of materials, I'm hoping that my students will be able to stay engaged and on task with the lessons I'm teaching. Options for movement and regulation will help students learn!

My Project

Students will be able to pick alternative seating that will allow them to be successful in the classroom. Rather than sitting still in a standard chair and table, my students will be able to chose a more grounded seat by sitting on the floor with their computer or paper work. When sitting doesn't feel right, students can use a standing desk to complete their tasks rather than sitting and getting off task. For those that do want to sit, 2 choices of foot fidgets will allow them to move under their tables, while staying on task and continuing to learn while they safely move!
