Wiggly, Wobbly Learning
My students need flexible seating to keep their brain active while doing academic work.
My students are eager to learn each morning. They also ask if we are going to do anything fun each morning. As an educator I love to answer "YES!" My goal is to make all lessons fun so that the students are more involved. I also understand that second grade students need to sit but still have a wiggle.
Our school is like one big family.
The teachers watch out for all the students even if they are not in their class. We are also a low income Title I school with a food for kids program. With all the problems our school and students may face, we have been awarded Great Expectations Model School for 14 years in a row and also a Healthy Lifestyles School. As a school we strive to overcome and to our best each and every day! We have a lot of pride in our school and community!
My students love flexible seating in the classroom! They currently have 6 wobble stools for the Chromebook center and 6 scoop rockers for reading in the floor.
We also have access to an Action Based Learning Lab in our school where the students have become familiar with other flexible seating such as wobble boards.
I have seen results with high test scores when students are able to study in our ABL Lab for a test. My goal is to incorporate as much of this into the classroom as possible. That is why I have chosen wobble cushions, wobble boards and a stability ball.
