My students need wiggle seats as well as seat foot fidgets to help them channel their energy to help them focus.
Picture adorable smiling faces, a boatload of energy, and an eagerness to learn as well as to share all of their own life experiences. Then you'll know what it looks like to walk into our classroom each day. I have the great pleasure of having a very diverse population of students in our classroom, each very unique in learning style and academic capabilities.
Portland, Maine is home to a diverse culture and a wide range of socioeconomic statuses which are seen throughout the city and in each one of the classrooms.
We have a high percentage of students who receive free or reduced price lunch. All students need to have a community that supports them, enables them to be themselves, and fosters skills and tools for successful learning.
More and more children are coming into the classroom FULL of energy. I would like to be able to provide a classroom environment that allows these energetic wiggly children a place to move, wobble and wiggle as they learn and complete their work. Over the past year I've worked hard to start transforming my classroom into one that contains a variety of seating choices for all types of learners I encounter each year.
Wobble chairs and wiggle foot bands have been shown to be a great way for children to channel their energy while still focusing on their learning.
The wobble chairs have been a huge success in the classroom so far. With the addition of a few more Wobble chairs I can provide more students with that choice. The wiggle foot bands will help to transform the traditional chairs we have in the classroom to chairs that help to get the suttle wiggles out. Thus empowering the kids to advocate for themselves and to know what their little bodies need at a young age to be successful.
Help me obtain a couple of wobble chairs and wiggle foot bands for my students by donating to this project. I know that the kids will love having the opportunity to sit on a more comfortable and forgiving seats then we did in our school days. By making the classroom a more comfortable space for my diverse students needs, their learning development will grow in leaps and bounds.
