My Students

Do you remember being a wiggly worm in elementary school? You tried your best to focus on your teachers's lesson while being still. You gave it your all to sit at your desk to complete your class work but failed because you could not be still.

I teach a wonderful group of energetic third graders at a Title I school.

We are an Action Based Learning school that incorporates movement while learning. However, Action Based Learning isn't enough to help my students while they are working during independent practice. I have 1 bicycle with a desk in my classroom that students can complete their work on. Everyone in my class wants to ride the bicycle desk but that's impossible. Flexible seating for all of my students will minimize the wiggly worms in my class.

My Project

The Kids Kore Wobble Chairs, bouncy bands, and K'Motion Stools will help my students that are fidgety and lack the ability to focus on their classwork during independent time. My students that are ADHD struggle with being still. They constantly get out of their seat to blow their nose, go to the restroom, get a sharpened pencil, or any excuse to get out of their seat.

I want to help my students to be successful and provide a positive outlet to release their wiggly worm energy by offering flexible seating.

These seats will not only help my ADHD students but it will also help all of my precious students to concentrate better during independent practice time.
