I teach second grade at a rural school. My school is an older school, but the staff cares so deeply for the students and we take great pride in creating the most inviting environment possible for them. 70% of my students receive free and reduced lunch. Most of my students are blessed with parents that work long hours, multiple jobs, and commute long distances to give their children the best life possible. My students have trouble reaching grade-level proficiency without intervention. My students are eager to learn and are showing a great amount of growth in a short time.
As soon as students arrive in my classroom they are only given one option, to sit in a standard chair at a desk. I am requesting Wobble Chairs in order to give my students more seating options. My room already has pillow seats and stools to offer the students some variety, but these don't allow them the movement they need in order to help them stay focused and engaged throughout the day.
Students do their best learning when their whole body is being used in learning because it assists them in staying focused and engaged.
Wobble Chairs would provide an outlet for my high-energy children. Wobble Chairs are also designed with students with ADD and ADHD in mind, which I have many of in my classroom. The Wobble Chair has been proven to increase secondary focus in the classroom.
