My students are creative, thoughtful, competitive, and LOVE to move. Each day that they come into class they are eager to check not only on me, but on their fellow classmates as well. All of my students love learning and get so excited about new topics. In our classroom we take many brain breaks during the day that activate their competitive side and longing to move. Our brain breaks can be anything from a GoNoodle dance off, a round of Simon Says, or even a calm five minutes of yoga. I have noticed that after we are able to move our bodies that my students are able to better focus on their work and lessons.
My students LOVE to move. They are constantly moving, tapping, or dancing. These flexible seating options will be wonderful for my students. Getting to sit on the ball or on the wobble stool will allow my students to get out their wiggles, while still staying focused. Each morning when we come in, we will rotate and take turns on choosing how they get to sit for the day.
Getting to make that decision each morning on what is right for their own body that day will be empowering!
These flexible seating options will not only allow my students to be able to move in a clam way, but also to become more in-tune with their body.
