My Students

My students are enthusiastic 7th graders striving to figure out new math in group settings. This age group is witty and kind. They enter middle school with high expectations and the desire to succeed.

Focusing is difficult when you are uncomfortable.

Many students at this age have ADHD or other learning disabilities (diagnosed or not), that make it hard to succeed in the classroom. Being uncomfortable leads to distracted behavior. Plastic chairs are uncomfortable, they are not what's best for learning, but they are the least expensive. We can fix this!

My Project

Research shows that attending to tasks in the classroom is becoming more difficult for more students, yearly. It also shows that males are more likely to be identified with ADHD. Many interventions are available for the classrooms to help these students be successful as they learn to navigate their learning styles. Sit discs are good for students with identified as well as unidentified learning disabilities.

One intervention is to provide padding for the hard plastic chairs, to minimize discomfort and behavior distractions.

All students should have the opportunity to sit comfortably while learning. Sit discs allow students to wiggle slightly while still attending to tasks.
