My students need comfortable and flexible seating while at their desks (wiggle seats) and on the carpet (stadium chairs) to support their ability to focus and meet their learning goals during independent, group and partner learning.
Our classroom is a welcoming creative place for children to be themselves and learn cooperatively with and from each other. Children are encouraged to take risks and make mistakes in order to stretch their learning further.
Each child is individually unique and special as they are.
It is important that each child learns to have a growth mindset and that our classroom is a place where collaboration and individuality is respected and encouraged.
My students are active young children who are curious about the world around them. Each day I strive to support each child's needs and to teach the whole child.
I have a wonderful and diverse group of students entering our first grade class. Each child is unique and learns in their own way. This year I will have a mix of 5 and 6 year olds. Their attention spans for learning will differ as well as their understanding of personal space.
Students deserve to have seating that will meet their needs and support their learning.
I am requesting the wiggle seats to support students working at their desks or sitting in a chair at a table. These seats allow children the opportunity to move while sitting! Which will also create the opportunity for longer times of focus to support growth in all academic areas.
Wiggle seats were originally created and used to support children with ADHD. In my last eight years teaching I have seen these seats be a successful tool for ALL learners, especially our young first graders.
The camp chairs create a comfortable personal space for each child while we are sitting together on the floor during group learning times, read alouds, and morning meeting. Personal space is a difficult concept to put into practice for young children, but an important one.
Over the course of my career I have tired many ideas: carpet squares, assigned seating, tape on the floor, etc. All of these ideas worked in some way but didn't completely support students being comfortable and also taking on the responsibility or learning what personal space is for themselves. I have seen these chairs used in a library setting during read alouds and lessons and would be thrilled to bring this idea to our classroom.
