I teach in a high poverty school and over half of my students are English Language Learners. Many of my children come from single parent families and are living in multi-generational homes. While some of my children are on grade level in reading and math, the majority of them are a half to a full year below grade level in one or both areas.
I believe my most important job during my time with my students is to create an environment that gives them a safe, comfortable place to develop a love for learning.
In order to do that, I spend a great deal of time researching better teaching methods, materials, and environmental supports. It is my heart's desire to fill our room with books and materials to facilitate their learning and equipment to give them work stations that meet their needs in the best possible way.
Flexible seating gives children options throughout their day to complete their work in an environment that best suits their learning styles.
Children love to move!
Developmentally, seven year olds should not sit still for long periods of time. Wobble stools would allow my students the option to move while they work. This helps to develop core strength and balance and also allows for increased blood flow to their brains which has shown to increase their concentration.
Wobble stools are especially helpful for children that have sensory or attention disorders that cause them to need to fidget and move. Please help my students reach the high standards we have set for them in reading, writing and math. Help them build, stimulate, improve and move while they work so they can focus and achieve!
