My Students

The 85 fifth and sixth grade students on my middle school team come to school every day enthusiastic and eager to learn. They love their school and their teachers, and I am fortunate to spend my days with them.

Their steady optimism keeps me going, as well as puts my own daily challenges in perspective.

Young students are bursting with energy, but recess and physical movement in schools are rapidly disappearing, as schools feel the pressure of not enough time. I want to create a classroom where we can embrace their energy.

My Project

This project for 1 stool is a follow up to my first, which requested wobble seating for my very active middle school students. As schools have been mandated to cover more and more areas of academia and social-emotional learning, we have reduced the amount of time children have for recess or other unstructured physical movement.

Wobble stools will provide a way for students to meet some of their movement needs while still maximizing instructional time.

My first project generously provided 5 stools, but one more would allow each of the 6 groups of four students in my classroom to share.
