My students need balance ball chairs, wobble stools, and a large square cushion seat for flexible seating options that are comfortable and will promote on task learning.
I work at a Title I elementary school where all children receive free breakfast and lunch. On weekends, we provide backpacks of food to get them through the weekend. My students are curious, challenging, sweet and smart, and I want to give them every opportunity to be successful.
I have twenty-two, wiggly first graders who have grown so much in reading and math this year.
I do believe having some flexible seating in the classroom has helped my extreme wigglers because their scores have risen, also. Students are learning in new ways, and classroom environments are changing. We have rugs, beanbags, lap desks and stools that give my students a choice in how and where they learn. It's empowering to them to have a choice.
My students are very active. We have incorporated some flexible seating in our first grade classroom this year, and I have seen amazing improvement in students staying on task longer than they used to. With balance ball chairs, a couple more wobble stools and a fat cushion stool, five more students are able to try flexible seating and see where their comfort zones are.
Being able to wiggle while you work when you are six years old and sitting for long periods at a time is an incredible experience for students that have trouble sitting still.
It's fun, a new way of learning, and children are embracing it everywhere.
Thank you for considering my project and helping high-needs kids have resources they truly deserve.
