My Students

I am so excited to start my new journey at my elementary school. I will be teaching second grade and I cannot wait to meet my new students. Our school is a title I and majority of students come from low-income households. My students are of the ages of seven and eight and could use a little added movement into their day. Not only movement, but you will be giving my student's opportunities to show responsibility and self-control while using this style of flexible seating. Both are such important life skills to teach to any child and you could be apart of helping our classroom achieve this goal!

My Project

Here are some reasons for why I think this project for six Kids Kore Wobble Chairs will be beneficial for my scholars.

First, Wobble Chairs help students with their posture while sitting by engaging their core.

Secondly, moving chairs allow students opportunities to practice sharing, self-control with their movements, and overall responsibility. Third, the Wobbles will give students the ability to incorporate movement into their learning and keep them more on task. Lastly, they will allow students to have a variety of seating, so they can choose how they would like to learn.

All around, flexible seating is a huge plus in any learning environment and I would love to have it for my hardworking scholars.
