Wobbly Seats for Wonderful Scholars

Help me give my students wobble cushions to help with focus during seated work times.

My Students

I am the librarian at a growing school with students from prekindergarten through 5th grade. My students are active, energetic, and love working with each other as learners.

My library is designed to be a place where students learn through exploring topics- both curricular topics and topics of interest to them.

Students also have opportunities to become the teachers, learning about topics with the goal of teaching others. I frequently learn new things and discover new perspectives from my students. It is always thrilling to see students take ownership of their learning, and to find topics that they can get excited about.

My Project

Elementary school children are full of energy, especially younger students and students who are coming from high-energy times such as lunch and recess. Though my classroom offers opportunities for movement, there are also times where students need to be at their seats for instruction or skills practice.

By providing my students with the option to pick up wobble cushions if needed, students can channel energy in ways that are subtle enough to allow themselves and their peers to be able to concentrate on their tasks.

Students will be able to 'rock' in their chairs using the cushions while the chairs stay safely on the ground. Thes cushions can also give my younger students an extra bit of height to help them reach items on the tables more easily.
