My Students

If you ask a fourth grader what her favorite subject is, you might expect her to jokingly reply: "recess!" Kids as well as researchers know that being able to move around and be active helps kids better focus in the classroom.

My students are hardworking, imaginative, and motivated to learn and excel.

Many are English language learners whose families have recently moved to the United States. They take school very seriously and love to impress adults with how smart they are!

My Project

My students always remind me when they need a break for movement. They understand that being able to move around can help them retain what they're learning. We currently have only three active chairs in our classroom and my students have created a calendar to help fairly determine who gets to use the chairs each day. They often ask me if there's any way to get more of the exercise chairs to help them stay active while they learn.

This kid-inspired project will allow us to meet the kinesthetic needs of even more students by allowing the whole class to stay moving while they are hard at work.

These moving wiggle stools have been proven to help students strengthen their core strength and increase their focus by transforming stationary sitting into a physical activity!

This project will help students to move actively throughout the day and contribute to their daily goal of one hour of physical activity.

These Kore stools will release students from a passive learning posture, glued to their seats, dissociated, with decreased oxygen in their brains—and engage them physically and creatively with what they are learning. By getting students out of stationary chairs, we help them make stronger connections to academic subjects and keep them working on their goal of one hour of activity each day!
