I teach 60 second graders Language Arts every day. I have each set of students for 3 hours. Our time is centered around reading wonderful literature, deep reading, and writing. We use chants and songs to remember key language skills.
We strive to close the achievement gap in our low income neighborhood and we are succeeding.
Many of our students are English language learners, so reading is even more of a challenge. My 60 wonderful, energetic, creative second graders love books and love to read.
The Learniture Active Learning Stools will be used in small group reading centers. This is where our students sit and work on phonics and reading skills with a small group instructor.
Being able to move a little will help our active learners work their wiggles out while they work on their reading and writing.
Everyone loves to have a choice. These fun stools allow the students to have an option for more kid friendly seating. Having to balance helps with focus and posture. No sleeping on the job in our classroom!
Best of all, the kids love them. They look forward to coming to the center table because they can't wait to get to their wiggle seat.
