Whether it be fine motor or gross motor, they need to move. We have brain breaks quite frequently in my school and provide different ways for students to move. When I look at adding something to my classroom, I think of how many students it can benefit. My students this year are very tactile and love to do their work all over the place. Help me, help them reach all of their needs to do their best learning!
Hi! My first grade class LOVES to move. Whether it be when we are outside playing a class game of baseball, stamping their words into kinetic sand, or sitting on a pillow rather than a chair, all of my students prefer something different that will help them learn at their best.
It is important to let children decide how they learn best so that they can become successful, self-directed learners.
My class is already doing this, but these items would help them even more! I am so excited to continue to give them the support they need to be successful.
