My Students

My third graders walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything. My third graders come from a variety of different economic backgrounds in our urban community. Our school boundaries also include our county domestic abuse center for women and their children; we open our doors to students who are temporary housed at this shelter and who are experiencing crisis in their young lives.

My students want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful.

My third graders are eager to learn and do their best.

My Project

Our bodies are built to move, yet often our children sit for long periods of time during the school day, which can prove to be difficult for many learners. Many studies show that the relationship between movement and learning is vital for optimal learning to take place. The more moving the more learning!!

Wobble stools were created to provide a physical outlet for high energy levels, while allowing student to be productive.

The rocking motion of the wobble stool gives input to the nervous system, which in turn causes the brain to become calm and organized. The cerebellum is part of the brain that is most associated with balance, posture, and movement. The cerebellum is only 10 percent of the brain size but contains about half of the brain's neurons. Wobble stools will keep wiggling students fully engaged and on task throughout the school day. Children of all ages need to get moving!!

These adjustable wobble stools will benefit my students by allowing them to move while learning. Designed with a gently rounded bottom, the chair will transform the boring conventional seat into a place that both movement and learning happen simultaneously. We are 19 years into the 21st century and it is time to have a dynamic classroom environment to match the dynamic fast paced world that we live in. Flexible seating is the 21st century way for students to self-regulate their behavior and their learning.
