My Students

We live in South Texas, and I have a wonderful group of kiddos in my class. My classroom consists of students with various learning styles. I have several students who are English language learners, some with special educational needs due to learning difficulties, including two with dyslexia, a couple who are gifted and talented, and others with ADHD and behavioral problems. This diverse group of students is always eager to learn and wild about incorporating anything hands-on or technology-related into their projects, assignments, and activities.

My students work hard daily, and their enthusiasm for learning grows when they hear that hands-on fun will somehow be involved in their work.

They have shown motivation, commitment, responsibility, ​and patience when it is time to use the limited amount of technology and other resources available in my classroom to complete assignments. They deserve the opportunity to extend and enrich their learning with more digital and creative learning devices and resources for the classroom.

My Project

I’ve been looking into the idea of flexible seating for a while now and have finally found some great options with these two Tic Toc Tyke seats by Fully. According to their website, “Tic Toc Tyke is specifically designed for young bodies and minds, offering just the right amount of movement, at just the right height for a child’s desk. Its gently rocking, swaying motion works with children’s natural energy and teaches them to listen to their body’s needs, for a lifetime of healthy sitting and more energetic, focused learning“. Research has shown that a flexible learning environment has yielded positive results in student learning. “In addition to the obvious connections between movement and health, movement and posture, and movement and joy, researchers are finding an undeniable connection between movement and learning. It turns out, kids focus longer, process faster, and learn better when they are given the freedom to move.” I would love the opportunity and your help in bringing these seating options into my 3rd-grade classroom!
