Wobble While You Work

My students need a vessel to relieve their restlessness. They need 6 Kore Active Wobble Chairs.

My Students

Twenty-two bodies dance their way into my classroom each morning ready to learn. They come filled with endless wonder (and questions) and possibilities.

I have the privilege of being a teacher to 22 wonderful kindergarteners.

I work with economically disadvantaged and ESL students at a Title 1 school. When you take away their hardships, they are just like every other little 5-6 year old group of kids. They are sponges ready to soak up the world around them and have made great strides to become independent learners.

My Project

Many of my students have difficulty sitting still in their seats and find themselves easily distracted and off task. There is a strong link between body movement and learning, and I believe that Wobble Chairs would have a positive impact on their behavior and learning in my classroom. By implementing these six wobble chairs, I will be able to provide a chair for each child during small group guided reading so that they can gain as much as they can from the lesson, rather than spend the brain power on trying to stay put in a seat.

If these students can wiggle and move in a manageable way, they can allow their brains to focus on the learning.

This will provide them with a means of burning off some pent up energy and stay on task!
