My Students

I work at a Title I school and many of my students receive free and reduced lunch. They are incredible learners, leaders, and friends and I LOVE coming to work each day! They care about each other and encourage each other to become better learners.

My class is the sweetest group of students, and have a wide range of needs as learners.

The majority of my class came in low academically, but have grown so much. They are all very different in their learning style, especially while learning as a whole group on the rug or working around the room. Schools provide very traditional tables and chairs, but this does not work for every child. I already have many "special spots" in the room that students can sit, but I would love to have more to help them become the best learners they can be!

My Project

My students have a wide range of needs, and love to wiggle! The traditional tables and chairs in schools simply don’t work for all students, especially our younger students with loads of energy! These wiggle stools and bouncy bands will allow us to get our wiggles out while we work and learn. I have normal stools and chairs in my classroom that students can sit at and when they use them they are constantly tipping them over so they can move their bodies while they are listening or learning.

I have seen how hard it is for some students to sit in chairs without moving their bodies while they work.

I know that these materials will make all the difference for my students to have choice in what they sit in so they can decide their best learner spot, and will help them become more focused and on task while working and learning.
