Help me give my students flexible seating, so they can wiggle while they work using Wobble Chairs and Bouncy Bands.
I work at a K-8 school, in a rural county in Florida. Over 80% of the students in our county come from low-income families which makes us a Title I county. Unfortunately, on October 10th, our community was hit hard by Hurricane Michael. Many homes were either damaged or destroyed. Some students were displaced from the hurricane and/or lost everything that belonged to them. It has put a huge financial strain on many residents in our community.
The students in my third grade classroom consists of 8-10 year olds with varying learning abilities and styles.
These students have been through so much that I want to ensure that they are comfortable while they work.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clipboards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.
The wobble stools and bouncy bands will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
