Help me give my students a way to calm their wiggles.
Wiggle seats as well as the Bendi bands allow those students that need to keep moving the ability to do so without disrupting the class.
I teach some of the most amazing students. Year after year they continue to persevere through life challenges that 9 and 10 year olds should not be subjected to face. Many of my students physically need to be up and moving to learn as they struggle to sit still. Others require a quiet setting while in an open classroom setting.
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
As teachers we want to do everything we can to create the best atmosphere and school climate so that our children have every opportunity to succeed. We also want to make sure they have the tools to be successful even after they leave our class. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your donation.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.
My students are noticeably more engaged and focus on their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work within the classroom.
Many of the items I have selected for my class are items that students have used in other classrooms in my building with success. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out.
