Ms. Leatherwood from Austin TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the ability to focus on art and get the wiggles out with wobble stools.
My students are an energetic and rambunctious group of students who have a hard time sitting still in art class. They are attempting to become more self directed in my choice based classroom, but the distractions of friends, little time to go out and play, and the demands of the rigorous modern day classroom and testing culture are making it hard for everyone to focus.
We have a SPED population of 20%, many of which think better when they have an opportunity to move their bodies and quiet their brains.
Every student in the school however benefits from the ability to get the wiggles out so they can focus on their work.
Research shows that kids minds focus more when their bodies are engaged. In a small classroom it isn't always possible to wander around the classroom to keep that engagement, and in the art classroom, if a student is wandering the room they aren't working on their art. Wobble stools have been proven to help students with Autism and other sensory issues focus on their work while also engaging their core.
All students can benefit from having their core engaged regularly.
Its not a secret that recess is regularly getting pushed to the back burner to make time for more assessments. These stools in my classroom will help chip away at that need for movement, while helping students be more engaged in their work.
