My students come from a wide range of backgrounds. There are over 400 students in my school, and every one is unique. Nearly 90% of the school is on free and reduced-price lunch. For the majority, English is not a first language, so it can be challenging for students to get support from their families. I try to provide the best learning environment possible.
My students deserve to have every opportunity to explore and engage themselves in their education.
My students are excited about what they do in my classroom, and they can share that enthusiasm with their families. This makes for a better learning community for everyone.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. In my room, students are able to work in different places around the room. They are also allowed to sit, stand, lay on the floor, etc. as long as they are engaged in the activity. Students appreciate having a choice.
When students are comfortable they are move involved and motivated in class and will be able to learn better.
These Kore wobble seats would allow them more choices and would allow more students to have seating that meets their needs. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
I have seen these used in other classrooms and how well the students like them and know they would be beneficial in my room as well.
