Our STEM, Title I school serves a diverse community of K-5 students in Beaverton, Oregon. Nearly 65% of our students qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch and 15% experience homelessness at some point during the school year. However, our students persevere through these hardships.
As a STEM School, our students are focusing on embedding math in areas of science, technology, and engineering.
I am fortunate enough to work with small groups of students to support them in becoming confident problem solvers. Discussing strategies to help math make sense.
Flexible seating isn't just a fad, it really works! I am fortunate enough to already have 6 flexible seating stools in my teaching space. I would love for this seating option (wobble chairs) to benefit all my math students and allow students in the 2nd and 5th grade to enjoy this seating option.
My students are more focused during math and enjoy working in groups or independently by sitting on these stools.
These tools target a common issue, fidgety kids who have trouble attending and staying focused on a task. These chairs provide a sensory strategy to help with engagement and attention in our small math groups.
