My Students

My students from West Virginia are excited and scared at the same time. For the majority of them, this is the first time they are leaving their homes and going into a situation that expects them to sit, listen, and learn.

My kindergarteners are like sponges.

They want to see and learn everything they can. I love when they become so animated when they learn something they didn't know before. They try to absorb everything they hear and come in contact with.

My Project

Remember when we went to school and the desks were all in a row and we sat in wooden seats before iPads and social media. The students of today are fluent in video games and iPads. They receive instant gratification from these items and are very stimulated all day long.

Classrooms need to be stimulating and inviting so students want to learn.

Having Wobble Chairs and Wobble Cushions will give my students the choice of seating and these items allow the students some movement while learning.

The Wobble Chairs will be used at the tables and allow the students that can't sit still an ability to move without disrupting anyone else. The Wobble Cushions will be used on the whole group carpet area again for students that can't sit still to learn.
