My Students

My students attend a large school that is Title I. We get limited funding each year and need technology to continue to move into the 21st century. I am a special education resource teacher, meaning that all of my students have a variety of learning disorders, intellectual disabilities, behavior plans, or other complications that make it difficult for them to succeed in the academic setting.

By providing them with the necessary items, students are able to complete assignments as their peers do, just in a different format.

The special education team serves students in the resource room and in their academic classrooms.

My Project

I currently have a few Wobble Chairs in my room, and they have created a drastic improvement for my students who need to move around while learning. The balance ball seats which I am requesting will be used to provide a different approach to flexible seating for ALL my students.

Currently the Wobble Chairs are a coveted seat in my various centers.

By providing additional flexible seating, ALL of my students will have the opportunity to get their wiggles out while focusing on the classroom lesson. These “chairs” provide a safe way for students to move their legs, torso, and arms without distracting others or themselves.

As a person who likes to move around often, I know that the flexible seating options are wonderful! These “chairs” will allow me to move to a full classroom set of flexible seating, and they will be used for years to come! Students have so many outside factors that distract them from focusing in the classroom, but wiggling around will no longer be one of them!
