I am fortunate enough to be completing my first year of teaching with my Terrific Third Graders! I teach at an amazing Title I elementary school where our students are economically and ethnically diverse.
My students are energetic, hardworking, kind and gaining their independence as learners.
They come to school each day ready to learn. As their teacher, I am always looking for new ways to challenge them in the classroom while providing them with opportunities to gain new skills.
We all know that students learn in different ways, but our classrooms are not always set up to reflect that. While I cannot change the structure and expectations of the curriculum, I can create an environment that addresses my students' varying needs. The addition of flexible seating will give my students the ability to learn in a seat thats helps give them the movement necessary to enhance their individual learning. As a teacher, we do our best and use our own income to buy resources and supplies for our classroom to foster our students' success.
Many times our students' individual learning needs are amplified when they're given the ability to get out their wiggles and get their blood moving!
Students will be able to wiggle while they work while sitting on wobble chairs. The rounded bottom of the stool allows students to activate and engage their core muscles while they sit and work. This active sitting helps them focus and expend restlessness and extra energy. I know these wobble seats will help my students focus on their work while being comfortable and getting out those wiggles!
