My students need flexible seating options to allow them to fidget while they focus on their schoolwork and group projects. The post-it easel pads will allow them to participate in educational gallery walks and collaborative learning.
My students are bright and energetic learners who are learning to love learning. They are in a learning and language disabled program in a Title 1 school district and range from 6th through 8th grades. My students are embracing a growth mindset and have been working hard to improve their reading, writing, and language skills. They have begun to enjoy reading and having meaningful discussions on the novels we read in class.
Many of them struggle with focus and attention difficulties.
Studies have proven that students who are allowed to participate in short bouts of physical activity through classroom movement, are more productive.
They enjoy working in cooperative groups and having the freedom to move about the classroom. They have been working hard on learning to self-correct behaviors and to be responsible for their learning. I am so proud of how far they have come this year, I am looking forward to creating an even more productive learning environment for them.
My students have learning and attention struggles that these products will help alleviate. I have purchased gaming chairs, bean bags, and pillow seats for the classroom that the students use during cooperative learning, independent reading, or classwork time. I would like the wobble stools to add to the flexible seating around the classroom. The flexible seating will allow the students the freedom to fidget without disrupting their learning or the learning of the students around them. It allows them to be more productive and fidget while still completing their work. They will also be added as a behavior management tool during cooperative groups and literature circles.
The easel pads allow students to easily participate in gallery walks, rotating stations, group presentations, and cooperative learning.
The students gain confidence and pride in their work when it is displayed throughout the classroom. They also benefit from non-traditional classrooms. When they participate in gallery walks, the students spend time helping each other and discussing the topics. The movement and low pressure environment helps them succeed.
