My Students

Our school is described as "the happiest school on Earth, " and is in a small Georgia Coastal Community with a large military population. Many of these students have attended 2 to 3 schools by the age of 9 due to parent deployments, post changes, and transfers. And with the stress of several moves and school changes, these challenges can become harder to overcome.

My 4th grade classroom is full of diverse learners.

Students in my classroom come to school excited to learn and are anxious to please, and are always excited for a challenge!

The students in my classroom have a wide range of learning abilities, needs, and challenges.

My Project

Offering changes in positions and movement opportunities throughout the day provides the children with much needed bursts of activity. A multi-sensory approach to learning contributes to better learning outcomes, attention, focus, less restlessness, and improves participation and behavior. By encouraging my students to wiggle, bounce or wobble; I will be providing them with tools to help them succeed. Frequent postural adjustments strength the core abdominal and truck musculature thus, promoting motor control to utilize a pencil, crayons and other classroom tools. Supplying students with a variety of lap desk options will allow them to find a comfortable spot and still be able to meet their learning targets, specifically using technology tools such as laptops. Also giving them access to stability balls will increase blood flow but still provide a stable, alternative place to sit.

Dynamic seating allows you to move and adjust yourself in a non disruptive way, burning off excessive energy and and providing muscles the stimuli they desire.

As with any activity, movement increases blood flow to the brain, resulting in increased brain function; allowing improved focus and better knowledge retention.
