As I enter my 3rd year of teaching, I am determined to provide the best materials and supports in hopes of helping them reach their educational potential and soar to succeed in 5th Grade. I will have a variety of students with very different learning styles, backgrounds, and personalities during the 2018-2019 school year who deserve the opportunity to have bouncy bands and wobbly stools which will encourage and motivate them to focus on the new 5th grade content.
As I recall my previous years of teaching, I have realized that "with every lesson, the undeniable connection between physical movement and learning becomes clearer." My students deserve the opportunity to move around in their seats and desk areas in order to fully focus on the rigorous content they're being expected to learn.
They need the freedom to move and explore in the midst of learning.
My students are in need of a class set of Bouncy Bands and six "Wobbly" Stools to allow them to move and fidget while learning. My classroom is comprised of a variety of students who need the opportunity to move around while learning in order to fully absorb and apply the rigorous fifth grade content to their lives! Utilizing these objects will allow my students to focus on the material in a more creative, movement-oriented fashion.
Allowing my students the opportunity to learn using these materials is something I feel they deserve, especially for how hard they work each day to meet their goals!
The wobbly stools will allow my students to move and fidget in small group settings, where they are being asked to delve deeper into content and make connections to their personal lives. In addition, the bouncy bands will allow for each of my students to move and fidget in their seats while being asked to focus in a whole-group setting. I know that these materials will allow my students the chance to feel comfortable moving about, while encouraging them to focus and apply their learning.
