My Students

I teach 99 amazing 3rd grade students in Midland, TX. Many cities, states and even counties are represented in my classroom. They are all unique in their own ways, but one thing they all have in common is they just need to wiggle sometimes. When the students come into my classroom they become grammar experts, editing and revising professionals, illustrators, and most important, authors. Writing is a long process that takes time and focus. The time writing demands can be hard for my young 3rd grades.

My Project

My 3rd grade writers need a way to wiggle while they work! These special classroom tools like wobble chairs, wobble cushions, lap desks, balance ball seats, and rubber foot bands will all help the whole 3rd grade class focus.

Students will be using these items to have flexible seating in my classroom.

I believe students want choices in their learning environment. When they are comfortable, they can get lost in their own writing. We believe in the power of our words!

While a student is swaying back and forth, or bouncing their feet on a rubber band, they will be directly focused on their writing without distracting peers around them.
