While all of my students are eager to learn, many have a difficult time sitting in their seats, especially for long periods of time. They need an alternative to the typical chairs that are in my classroom. Kore Wobble Chairs would be a great solution for them.
I am a special education resource specialist for 28 amazing elementary students in first through fifth grade.
My school is one of the most diverse in Oakland, and I have the most wonderful group of kids with a wide range of strengths and challenges. I support students with IEPs who have autism, ADHD, hearing and speech impairments, and auditory and visual learning disabilities.
Young children need to be active. Many of my students need to be active while learning in order to do their best! That's why I want to give my most energetic students an option to use Kore Wobble Chairs.
My students would love the opportunity to get their wiggles out during instruction time without disrupting their classmates.
Kids are often expected to sit in their (uncomfortable) chairs at their desks for more than 5-6 hours each day. Students benefit from using Wobble Chairs because they are designed to provide a physical challenge and opportunity to release energy while simultaneously working. The resources I am asking for will make a huge difference in my classroom, and my students would be so grateful to have access to these tools.
