“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”- Benjamin Franklin. As 21st century learners, they love to be involved in their own learning as they work collaboratively, communicate with each other, think critically, and explore their own creativity. My students are so excited about learning, and they have an incredible amount of energy.
I teach students who have the drive to become doctors, inventors, scientists, mathematicians, and future leaders in a rapidly changing world.
My students are a part of the gifted ALPS program (Accelerated Learning Program for Gifted Students). ALPS students are tested and represent the top 15% -20% of the students in the district. As gifted students, they learn quickly and love to explore topics deeply. Surprisingly, gifted students can also have psychomotor overexcitabilities which often manifest as the need to move. They can also have fidgety habits which can affect learning. Using wobble chairs can help my kids to learn while they get the wiggles out!
With you kind donation, I want to fill my classroom with Kore Wobble chairs. My kids are excited and eager to learn, but they need a way to channel their excess energy. They love to move around! Wobble chairs will help them focus on learning and increase their engagement. As 21st century learners, they will also have flexible seating options to help them work in small groups.
Using Kore Wobble chairs will have such a positive effect on student learning in my classroom.
Our classroom has limited space, and wobble chairs are the perfect size. My students will love having 21st century seating options!
