My Students

How often do you remember hearing the phrase, "I'm not a math person?" My goal is to work hand in hand with my students to debunk this mindset. My class serves many ranges of abilities within each student. My desire is to spark a desire to learn math creatively.

I want to foster within each of my students a mindset that they can all learn math.

In addition, I want them to know that learning math can be fun! This is my goal for each one of them, to have fun while learning math!

Many of my students struggle with learning math, pair this with any type of sensory issue and you have a frustrated student. Students who are affected by ADHD, ADD, or other special needs deserve all the support I can give them to help them become successful learners! I would like to provide an area in my classroom of alternate seating, where my students can have the opportunity to sit in a chair that will not hinder them, but help support their needs!

My Project

Physical activity is correlated with higher academic performance, better overall health, and improved behavior. Studies have found that short bursts of movement in the classroom contribute to better on-task behavior, with the most improvement seen in children who were the least on-task initially. Offering changes in positions and movement opportunities throughout the day provide these short bursts of activity.

Research supports the idea that dynamic seating options can be used to improve attention in students.

Just as adults need to get up and take a walk or pace the room while we think and brainstorm, kids also need outlets for moving and fidgeting during the school day.

When kids are taught to identify and honor their preferences for movement, fidgeting, and alternative positioning, they feel that their needs are being acknowledged, contributing to increased engagement and motivation in the classroom as well as an increased sense of community among the students.
