My third-grade students are curious boys and girls who attend a school that is unique in that it serves kindergarten through eighth-grade students. This age span at our school makes the transition from 5th grade to middle school so much easier for the students and allows them to keep lasting relationships with classmates and support staff.
My students come to learn and progress in all they do in class.
They practice the 7 Habits of Happy Kids on a daily basis by setting goals, being in charge of themselves, synergizing to get things done, and having time set aside to relax in preparation for the days ahead.
Many of my students do just fine sitting at their desks in chairs when learning. Some of my students have diffuculty sitting in chairs during lessons. They may wiggle and wobble or even fall off their chairs because sitting down is just not working at that time.
My students need the option to stand during lessons so they can stay focused and be successful during the school day!
These standing desks will help my students who need to wiggle or move around in order to stay engaged during lessons. They will also help my students have more energy during the day and improve their health.
