Help me give my students the opportunity to learn while moving. These wobble chairs by StudioCo will be perfect for those students in a small group that need a bit more movement during academic learning time.
I teach in a Title 1 school in a rural community in Northeast Georgia. Many of our students do not get experiences outside of their home and the classroom. Some of our students come to us with varying needs, both socially and emotionally. Academically, they vary in their skills and abilities as well. It is my goal to not only provide those needs, but encourage them to succeed and be a positive role model for others.
I love seeing their faces when they experience something new.
We love to provide experiences beyond the classroom, and within the classroom. First graders are very energetic and love to move as much as possible. I always try to incorporate academic music and movement within the school day.
During a small group lesson, the students that need extra movement can quietly wobble in their personal space while not disrupting the others. Many times, in traditional chairs, students tend to lean back, then that causes a fall, which distracts the others.
These wobble chairs will minimize falls and classroom disruptions.
They will allow the students the movement they need for concentration, while not disrupting others. They will be able to hold their concentration on the lesson, not trying to continually move to soothe the movement needs. In turn, the quiet movement will help the student concentrate, and learn the necessary academic standards.
