My Students

Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed/frustrated/discouraged by a task or a responsibility that you are expected to complete? I can't even count the amount of times in which I've realized that I was missing an ingredient for my dinner recipe or I couldn't figure out how to fix the toy that my daughter dropped. Luckily, as adults, were are able to conquer these problems by using our resources... think: a car, google, reading directions, etc. Kids, especially those with disabilities, experience feelings like this on a daily basis while they are at school. However, as children in a school setting, they often do not have the resources or the knowledge to go ahead and fix these "problems".

This year, have the honor to be teaching 19 sweet, smart, and adorable little loves in grades 1 and 3 who experience learning disabilities.

How lucky am I?! All of my students experience various difficulties with learning in the general education setting and need a little extra support (aka: LOVIN'!) from a special education teacher (that's me!). My students are all diagnosed with various disabilities from learning disabled to ADHD to autism which makes them all totally unique and equally amazing.

My Project

Sitting still is HARD! Elementary students, especially those with ADHD, autism, and even academic anxiety, have a difficult time sitting still to complete their classwork. These kiddos are often wiggly and full of energy and ooooooh so stinkin' cute and then we ask them to sit their little tushies down in a hard, stationary chair, and get to work. Hmmm.. I wonder why they're acting out by refusing to complete work or completely shutting down? I mean, can you blame them? If I'm being honest here, why in the world should I expect my kids to sit still when I can't even sit still myself?!

With these new Wobble Stools, my students will be given the opportunity to move their bodies while they work in my classroom.

This will allow them to show their best while minimizing frustration and gaining confidence as little learners. How awesome is that?!
