Wobble Chairs Give Us Stable Learning

My Students

My students are kind, hard-working kids who do their best to do anything I ask them. They rarely complain about the work we do in class, and I can always find a reason to brag on them. They are respectful to me, each other, and themselves.

My students attend a Title I school where every kid receives free breakfast and lunch.

This means many of my students come to school with heavy burdens on their shoulders. You cannot tell the problems they face by looking in my classroom because my classroom is a safe haven for my students. They are able to leave their non-academic troubles at the door. When they do have a situation they need to discuss, they know they can trust me to help them however I can. My students are special, and I want to do everything I can to meet their needs.

My Project

Third graders are a wiggly bunch of kids. They stand, spin, jump, fall, sit all in the course of a few minutes. I am flexible in allowing them to stand at their desks, but sometimes they abuse that by climbing on their chairs (and then falling out of them). I need a way to help my students that is safe.

Wobble Chairs will help my students get the wiggles out while they focus on the lesson they are learning.

Because of our schedule set-up, my students learn from 8:00-11:50 with a few restroom breaks thrown in there. While I try to plan engaging activities that get the students moving, sometimes it isn't enough. My students need a way to be able to move and learn at the same time (even when we're working on yucky word problems).
