My students need wobble stools, chair bands, balance disks, and fidget toys to allow the necessary movement to be successful in the classroom.
The students in our school are from low income families, and are at a disadvantage due to their socioeconomic backgrounds. My classroom is full of energetic 4th-6th Grade Special Education students. Many of my students have Autism and ADHD, and movement is necessary for them to focus. Therefore, I encourage a lot of movement and rotations within my room, because I know it is difficult to have them sit still for too long.
I like to empower my students by providing opportunities to increase independence whether it is working on a functional skill or an academic skill.
By giving them the opportunity of flexible seating, it will allow them to increase focus and concentration to do well on difficult tasks, as well as limit behaviors that are a result of sitting still for too long.
I have many students in my classroom that cannot sit in a typical chair for a period of time. It is impossible for them to sit still even for 2 minutes at a time, and it is affecting their ability to access curriculum that is being taught. By providing them these tools to promote the movement they crave, it will help foster a love for learning. This is why having wobble stools, fidget bands, balance disks, and even fidget toys are necessary in my classroom. My students do better anytime I incorporate more movement into the lessons and I truly believe this will help. Thank you for your help and donations to promoting success.
