My students need Wobble stools and Wobble cushions to help them concentrate while working. Studies have shown that the more students move, the more they learn. A large table will allow them to work together.
My classroom consists of 22 students who are full of energy and excited to learn every day. They love hands-on activities and love to work on projects with each other. My students are eager to learn, but they need some alternate seating to help them focus and engage.
Our school is a Title I school and most of our students receive free or reduced lunches.
Some of my students are very active and need more movement throughout the day than others. We are so excited about this project.
The materials and supplies I am requesting are to encourage collaboration and self- directed learning. My students are so excited to have a classroom full of flexible seating. Studies show that the more a student moves, the more he/she will learn. The table will be used for students to collaborate together on all sorts of projects. The wobble stools and cushions will allow students to move and learn will no distraction to students around them. This is especially important for students who struggle to focus. Students will get to choose a new seat each day. The power of choice can be a huge motivator for students!
