My Students

My first grade students' curiosity, excitement, and willingness to try new things is something that I am constantly inspired by. Each day they walk through our classroom door ready and eager for whatever the day will bring. From social skills to phonics skills, first grade is jam-packed with important lessons to be had, and my first graders are ready to tackle anything that comes their way! I strive to create an optimal environment for my students to succeed both academically and socially.

My Project

Wobble stools will help my students stay focused in class. The first grade day can be quite long for a brand new first grader, and as a teacher, it is clear that there are some students who need more opportunities to move throughout the day than others. I have found that these students are more successful and focused when they are allowed and encouraged to get their wiggles out.

The wobble stools will fulfill my students' need for movement in such a way that other students in class won't be distracted, yet my little wigglers can get their needs met.
