Now in my 9th year of teaching, I have found that my students learn best when they are able to move and be comfortable. A few years ago my school moved to a "Flexible Seating" classroom plan. My students know that they can move throughout the classroom and find spots that help them focus best. I believe that by adding these wobble seats, I can encourage my wiggly learners to focus by moving while they work!
No one enjoys sitting still for extended periods of time! These stools will allow my students to move back and forth and lean to the side when working with partners nearby. This will be especially helpful for students who struggle with ADHD and other needs. Right now, my students know they can work on yoga mats, the couch, our cafe table and even the carpet with a clipboard. Adding these in the to mix will encourage students to find a place that works best for their learning style! Thank you for supporting us!
