I have the wonderful opportunity to teach at a public Title I school that is classified as a CEP (community eligibility provision) school where all students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. My 19 amazing students come from a diverse background of military and non-military families who truly want the best for their children.
I have an active, inquisitive, and vibrant group of kindergartners.
My students love moving, jumping and learning in a format that engages all of their senses. I have a few students who have ADHD, and it helps them greatly when my centers allow them to move, engage, and manipulate to release some of their energy during learning.
Our classroom is filled with a variety of learning experiences that include STEM, technology-based learning, and small group as well as individualized instruction. As their teacher, I strive to create a classroom environment that is organized, warm, and inviting so my students can learn, work, and grow together each day!
Each afternoon we have math centers. This is the time of the day when my students are the most active and restless. Can you imagine trying to sit still to focus and complete work? This is difficult for my kindergarteners to sit and focus as they work through math stations.
These wobble stools will add much needed wobble to there afternoon and will allow them to rock, sway and weeble wobble through math.
This will give them the added movement which will help them focus on counting, number recognition and matching objects to the correct numeral.
The days of learning and sitting like a statue all day are over. Can you help bring more fun movement to increase engagement to our math centers? I know my students will benefit from these stools and have fun learning math concepts in the process.
Thanks for supporting my little weeble wobbles during our math time!
