My Students

My first-grade students are a beautifully diverse group of energetic and mindful kids. Our school teaches every subject but focuses on literacy as the key to growth in all subject areas.

Beyond the basics of reading, writing, and math, first grade is about building a sense of independence and self-advocacy.

As teachers, we have a responsibility to teach students to think for themselves, make decisions on their own, and to try and figure things out independently first before asking for help. This can be a challenge when learning is inhibited by the inability to focus in the classroom. My learners suffer from this challenge and are often behind in their academics. I'm looking to accommodate their needs in order to provide the most room for growth.

My Project

Out of my 18 students, I have 13 with attention and focus needs. This means that they have a constant need to move their bodies in order to remain focused on the material being presented. Sometimes they need something to fidget within their hands and other times they need a new seat that allows for more mobility. Sitting criss-cross-applesauce doesn't work for everyone! My learners need the ability to rock back and forth, sway from side to side, or wiggle in their chairs. These little movements stimulate the brain and they are better able to complete work independently.

Differentiated seating, like ball chairs, wobble stools and chair pods, give students the choice to learn in a different way.

They don't always have to sit still because that doesn't work for everyone! On the carpet, rocking chairs let kids stretch their legs and rock back and forth, all while keeping their attention on the story or lesson being taught. With your generous donations, my little learners are going to grow exponentially!
