My Students

My Kindergarten students are curious and enthusiastic! I have 22 4-5 years old this year. For most students, this is their first time being in a classroom all day.

My students are an active bunch and love discovering and learning new things.

They are still learning small and large motor control and need to move, fidget, and wiggle to help them focus. Many of my students have special needs with behavior, speech, and learning disabilities. Many of those students need alternative resources and strategies to help them be successful.

My Project

My students learn best when they are comfortable and can focus. Some prefer to sit, kneel, stand, lay down, but all of them like some kind of movement. We brainstormed as a class what were some other ways we can work and better focus our attention on our tasks. They would like alternative seating options like wobble stools that would provide the opportunity to move and be in a comfortable position.

My students also made a goal to take a "brain break" every hour to include some exercise and movement in our day.

In addition to the dancing and stretching, they would like to be able to move freely while sitting. The wobble stools are crucial in allowing for movement and balance. My students want to strengthen their muscles and their brain!
