My Students

I teach a vibrant group of first and second graders. We are constantly moving! We are small in number, but vast in ability. Some students are at the basics of reading and number concepts, while others are reading fluently and independently or manipulating multi-digits. Our class enjoys music, game-based learning, and yoga. We are learning to be mindful students and to be of a growth mindset.

Some of our favorite topics are animals, outer space, and people around the world.

We are a small, rural school. Many of the students live on dirt roads, and some completely off the grid. The majority of our families live on low incomes. Many of them rely on free or reduced meals. The greatest thing about our school is the rich sense of community. We are a village, raising the future.

My Project

My first and second graders are always moving and wiggling. Traditional chairs often end up getting in the way more than anything. They just can't keep their bottoms on the seats, let alone their feet on the floor!

I began experimenting with flex seating a few years ago.

We started with a few stability balls, which are affordable but only work well in small doses. We added some crate seats, which work for the students who haven't sprouted up quite yet.

This year a parent donated a wobble stool. It was amazing! They all loved it. So we got one more in the taller size. As we are reaching the end of the year, it looks like we really have a winner! Students can move wobble stools easily. They actually stay on their seats. Our first and second grade would love to have a class set of wobble stools so their bodies can move as their brains work.
