In my resource room, many of my students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. I teach in a low income/high poverty school district in small-town Indiana. This year, I am educating 33 students from both the 5th and 6th grades. My students face many obstacles that make learning difficult.
Despite these obstacles, they come to school with love and passion.
I work hard to develop positive relationships with them and encourage them to feel at home in my classroom. I’m a firm believer that achievement begins with relationships.
The goal of this project is to meet the sensory needs of the children in my 5th and 6th-grade resource room. These chairs are meant to let children work off energy while still attending to a lesson. I will use these chairs in my small group areas so that students can wiggle a little without disturbing the other children in the group.
A classroom set of wobble chairs would have such a positive impact on behavior and learning within my classroom.
I blend instruction with frequent brain breaks and use movement to stimulate their minds and bodies. However, students still need to stimulate their senses during lessons and the Studico Wobble Chairs would help with that because the chairs need to stay balanced. Integrating these sensory tools into the classroom will make a big difference in their daily learning activities.
