Shake, Wiggle and Roll in 2nd Grade

My students need balance ball chairs, wobble chairs, and portable lap desks.

My Students

My students are critical and creative thinkers. They are energetic and like to move around. Most of all they want to learn and do their best. Our students are encouraged to question, imagine possibilities, work collaboratively, create innovative solutions and always look for ways to improve.

We are a STEAM based charter school in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

We believe in hands-on, real world, problem-based learning. Students in middle school are given a concept or scenario and are asked to become engineers, using the engineering design process, to tackle the problem with creative solutions, while learning the required Common Core Standards.

My Project

I love being able to give my students choice in their learning. Giving them the option of choosing which seating style helps them learn best will make them feel motivated and confident to learn all throughout the school day. My students would love having wobble chairs, lap desks, and balance ball chairs as an alternative seating method, so they can move around while they are working without distracting their classmates. These have been very popular in my classroom because it allows students the ability to stay engaged in learning while moving and not distracting their peers.

Not all students learn the same way, so we cannot expect all students to sit the same way.

A comfortable learning environment is crucial to making students feel comfortable in the classroom. My students would benefit greatly from having flexible seating options, and I know it will make a great difference in their learning.
