My Students

I teach Creative Dramatics to wonderful students, but many children in the K-5 age group are what I call "bounciful". This is an expression I borrowed from "Tigger", the always moving character from The House at Pooh Corner.

Kids have an amazing amount of energy, and it can be difficult for them to be still, pay attention, and be good audience members.

For students who struggle with hyperactivity, it can be especially hard to watch their peers. I constantly seek ways to keep their attention.

They need something they know they can go to in order to work out some of that energy as they continue to watch what's going on in my class.

My Project

I brought a mini cycle to class with the aim of helping one particular student I had with A.D.H.D. and found that it helped all the students. My administration bought me two more, but students have asked me to get even more so they don't have to wait so long to use a cycle.

I have witnessed first hand that using the cycles helps them pay attention, think about what's going on in the lesson, and be good audience members, while still getting what they need from the lesson.

Either they move it, (their bodies) or I lose it (their attention) after a certain amount of time.
