Help me give my students get wiggles out so they can concentrate on learning.
I work at a Title I school as the instructional coach. In this role, I get the joy of working with all students in the school, placement testing, teaching small groups, and giving support in the classroom. The students at this school are simply amazing, as many come to school with more baggage than one should have at such a young age, but they are still here learning and working hard. We have a large population of students who are below grade level and require alternative core or modifications to core subjects. These students deserve every opportunity possible, so it is the school's goal to integrate small groups, technology, and PBIS this year to boost behavior and academics.
Students are in need of movement, but as we all know with demanding curriculums and standards it's all learning and no fun. Research tells us students learn better when they are not sitting for long periods of time or have movement incorporated during lessons. By giving students seating options that are non-traditional and allow for movement while the learning takes place, they have the opportunity to have the best of both worlds. Help students in my classroom learn and get the wiggles out at the same time for increased student achievement by increasing student engagement. We love to WIGGLE and learn!
