We Need a Shake Up in Our Rotations

Help me give my students standing desks, wobble seats, ball chairs, iPad cases, sit spots, and games to play in centers to continue on their learning path.

My Students

My students have an individual learning path they are traveling through with rotations that involve teacher-led instruction, digital learning, independent practice, and collaborative projects. All of these activities involve a lot of working in one place. I am trying to meet each student's individual learning needs while keeping their minds busy.

I teach math and science to 40 curious first grade students with a bad case of the wiggles.

My students are active six- and seven-year-olds who come to me with various educational needs and experiences.

I am working to meet the educational needs of my students. Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunches. Many of my students do not have opportunities for much physical activity after they leave school. Giving them more options for movement and core development during the day is a must.

My Project

Standing desks, fun seating options, and engaging educational games will help my students during our math rotations. My students spend part of their day in whole group instruction but the most effective instruction happens during small group rotations when I get to meet with students in small groups while the rest of the class is practicing math skills.

Having wiggle friendly seating, iPad cases that stand up, and engaging games will make this time productive for all my students.

Staying focused on a task for 15 to 20 minutes is hard for first graders. Being able to stand and use the swing bar on the desks will break up some of the time they sit all day. Being able to wiggle around safely on a wobble stool will allow little bodies to move like they desperately need to.
