4th grade is such an awesome grade to teach. The students are eager to learn and become more independent. My students mature and grow so much throughout their 4th-grade year.
My students need to have the freedom to move, bounce, and wiggle to be able to focus on challenging academic tasks.
The curriculum is rigorous and expectations are high. I am amazed at the perseverance and motivation that my students use to attack difficult tasks.
Our school is a Title l school. Students come to us from many different home structures and life experiences. We know that each child is a masterpiece in the making.
Wobble cushions will allow all of my students to have access to flexible seating. Students need to be able to move, which improves focus and time on task. These wobble cushions will help to build a classroom that can adapt and change to the needs of individual students, quickly and without interrupting the learning environment.
Giving students choice, allows them to feel like an important and valued part of our learning community.
These cushions allow students to choose where to use them, at a desk, in a chair, or on the ground. This leads to more focus and more productive students.
