My Students

"Every child is gifted. They just unwrap their packages at different times." My students are incredibly amazing, smart, giving, and caring. They also happen to be special education students who require alternate modes of learning, practice, and a variety of tools and adaptive equipment in order to achieve their goals.

My students work extremely hard at growing academically and behaviorally, but need various seating options to meet their sensory needs and reach their potential.

Every student should be able to have their learning needs met at school.

My Project

Incorporating wobble chairs into my classroom will allow me to meet the sensory needs of my students. When their sensory needs are met, they are focused they are able to participate appropriately and produce the work that is asked of them. My students are noticeably more engaged when all of their learning needs are being met.

The wobble chairs I have chosen will assist my students with getting their "wiggles" out while also being able to focus on instruction.

I have seen a clear difference in my students when they are able to move while they learn. Learning is difficult for all of my students, their disabilities hinder their learning on a daily basis. I'm trying to provide the necessary materials and tools to make learning easier for them. We all have mountains to climb in life, my student's mountains happen to be higher than others. These wobble stools are just one item that will play a huge part in helping them reach the top of their academic mountain.
