Get the Wiggles Out for Learning!

My Students

Getting the wiggles out of 1st grade. My class of students are just starting the year out right. We are in the second day of school for the 2018-2019 school year. When students are just starting out in 1st grade, they only remember their first experiences from being in their Kindergarten classes. I teach them to become more independent students in class, and along with that lesson, I need to teach them to get the wiggles out, stay in their seats, and quietly do their work.

As part of getting to know my students better, I become aware of the students who are having trouble sitting still and staying in their seats to do their work.

My Project

My students are starting 1st grade and they need a couple of items to help them become independent learners. Wiggle chairs and Bouncy Bands are items to help my students stay in their seats to be able to stay focused and to quietly do their work without too much distraction.

Wiggle chairs are stools that students can sit at their desks on and it helps them not only with staying in their seats but it helps develop muscles while learning to sit still and it keeps them focused on their work.

Bouncy Bands are attached to the front legs of their desks and they can bounce their feet on them. This also helps students stay focused on their work and helps them to sit still.
