I currently teach 18 special third graders. The students have a wide range of needs. Many have dealt with Trauma issues in their life. Many struggle to learn and comprehend at their grade level. Many of these students are shy and unwilling to open up to teachers and peers.
My students need love, support and the opportunity to do their best in school.
Some of them like school and others don't. Some of them find learning easy and others don't. I want to provide them with all the necessary skills and opportunities to let their minds grow. I believe in every single child that walks through my door, and I would love to be able to support every single need they have.
The use of wobble stools in my classroom will allow for students that are a little wiggly to get those wiggles out. Right now, their only option is to sit in conventional school desks that are attached to their chairs. Many of the students I work with need to move around while they are engaged in an activity, but not be a disruption to the rest of the class. I feel the wobble stools will allow for students to increase the time they are focused on a task.
The wobble stools will help calm the wiggles and help the students focus on their learning.
The students will be able to be more focused on their learning. Students will be able to move discreetly as to not disrupt their peers, or be redirected-- taking away from other student's learning. These stools might help close the gap of trauma-induced student's attitude toward learning and school.
