My students walk into our room with a high-five and a smile. At that point we try to forget our troubles from home to get ready to learn. My students come from a variety of different home lives, so it is extremely important that they have all the tools they need to succeed every day.
Without them, my job is pointless.
They make coming to school every day worth it! The least I can do is provide them a safe space to learn, grow and make mistakes.
These seating choices will make a difference in students' learning by giving them the choice to be comfortable while working with their peers.
Learning today is hands-on, these flexible seating options give students the chance to get their wiggles out while being productive.
My students will benefit from these every lesson, every day!
I recently attended a Trauma-Informed School Conference where I learned how important it is for students from trauma to be able to self-soothe.
Rocking is one of those soothing feelings. The rocking chairs, wobble seats, and balance balls all provide students the ability to rock themselves when they're feeling anxious or need help calming down.
Many studies show that movement is a natural way for students to develop a better understanding of what they're working on. Each of these seating options gives students that opportunity!
