My Students

Our class is made up of 25 special students who have limited resources at home. The school is made up of low income families where the majority of students live in single parent homes or are being taken care of by extended family members such as grandparents or aunts and uncles.

My students are your typical 6 and 7 year olds.

They are full of energy! I have 2 student on an IEP (who require additional help in Reading and Math) and 3 students who require more TLC then the average kid.

My Project

Some of my students have sensory issues and need the extra touch that the wobble seat can give them. The school's occupational therapist has suggested the wobble seats to help the attention spans of my students. Wobble seats have been used to increase attentions spans in students with ADHD. The cushions give the students the movement that their bodies need so they can stay focused on the materials we are learning in class. Many teachers have said that the cushion also helps students to get the movement the students desire without distracting the other students.

Wobble seats also helps with good posture as well.
