The majority of my students are experiencing school for the first time, and they are so excited to learn! Many of my students are Spanish speaking, living in a low-income neighborhood, and the majority of my students are receiving free meals during the school day.
Making school a fun place to learn is so important because kindergarten is the foundational year of their education.
My classroom provides the consistency and support my students need. I want to utilize all of the technology and educational resources that I can to give my students real life, hands-on experiences to make their learning meaningful. I am setting my students up for success!
My students are young...just five and six years old! They are expected to sit through a long day of learning and focus on difficult concepts. Many of my students have difficulty sitting still in hard, plastic chairs. I have started to get resources such as wiggle stools, scoop rockers, lap desks and even balance balls to help my students get the wiggles out while learning. I have already seen an increase in student performance and success!
My students who have an ADHD diagnosis need these flexible seating options to allow their bodies to move safely while learning.
These soft cushions, stadium seats, and doughnut chairs will allow my students to choose what is most comfortable for them. School can sometimes be a miserable place for students with ADHD. I want to give my students the resources for success. My students will flourish with these flexible seating options. Thank you for your support!
