My Students

My Sixth graders: are facing new challenges each and every day. These students are unique coming from traditional campus and would rather be anywhere than in the classroom/school learning about character analysis, inferences and writing. The thought of sitting for even a few minutes on hard, uncomfortable chairs can be a challenge. Some of these students would work better while standing a few minutes to stretch while working then having the opportunity to sit when need to stretch their legs in the Wobble Stools.

My school has a wonderfully diverse population, including a small group of students that are very active.

After standing and completing assignments at the standing desk they will need a comfortable stool to sit in and relax while continuing the next assignment.

My Project

I would like to offer my students flexible seating to ensure that they can work in a way that supports their needs. I currently have standing desk. This is fine, however, I would like to give my students the flexibility to be able to stand as well as sit at the standing desk with the Wobble Stools. They were excited about having the choices of standing or sitting while reading. I really would like to give them the choice to be able to sit at the standing desk also. They can stand while working as some students work better while standing and stretching out their legs as well as taking a break and sit while relaxing when completing assignments and reading.

I believe this will help them to become more enthusiastic and motivated while engaging in reading and writing activities.

This will promote independence and creativity.
