Seeing my students grow and learn is the best. They are so energetic and love to move around while learning. I have some that fall out of chairs while they are moving in chairs. So I feel that it is time to try alternative seating in my classroom. My students range from ADHD to Autism so I teach a variety of students. They are very talented students who deserve only the best. So I am going to try to be the best teacher for them.
The ball chairs are to help students be able to move while they are working. The wobble chairs are for those who have the need to move while learning. I have several with ADHD who are not on medication. They need to move in order to get learning done. We should not expect a child to sit all day and not wiggle. This gives them a chance to move while they work. i tried one in my class and it made a huge difference in my one student so now I want it for ALL of my children in my classroom
