My Students

I have a wonderful, enthusiastic, wiggly group of active fourth grade students this year. Some of them are diagnosed ADHD and some just like to move. They are a very inquisitive group, but sometimes have difficulty focusing. We live in a rural area where many of the students qualify for free or reduced lunches and its often hard to obtain money for extras. My fourth grade class is an awesome group of students who just need a little help getting their wiggles out so they can better attend.

My Project

My current students are very inquisitive and want to do well with their academics. They are a very active group of kids. Some have ADHD and most just like to move. Flexible seating with the wobble chairs and the Waliki seats will allow them to move while at their desks. This will allow them to focus more on the lesson instead of their need to move. As they are better able to focus their learning will increase. This flexible seating will allow my students to increase their learning and better prepare them for their futures. As the seating provides an avenue for them to move, there behavior should also improve. This will make a better learning environment for all the students.
