My Students

I am a fourth grade teacher at an elementary school. I teach a total of 25 students. We have a high population of military families. We also have a large percentage of families that receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Our school sits in a rural community that cares deeply about the students and their education.

One unique aspect of our school is that we are part of the Participate program. Our school focuses on global education. We try to prepare our students to be active and positive members of the community and the world around them. The students in my classroom are always eager to learn and strive to do their best.

My Project

The goal of this project is to meet the sensory needs of the children in my fourth grade classroom. These wobble chairs are meant to let children work off energy while still attending to a lesson. I will use these chairs during small group, so that students can wiggle at their seat without disturbing the other children in the classroom.

Even as adults, we find it unsatisfying to sit still for prolonged amounts of time.

At meetings, I even find myself getting distracted after sitting and taking in information for long periods of time. Children especially need opportunities to deal with their built up energy. My students love time to stand and work at their seats, counter tops or anywhere else around the room.

Studies show wobble chairs can strengthen core muscles and the rocking motion can be calming and organizing for the brain, which helps kids pay attention. These chairs are especially beneficial for students with ADHD.
