Teacher Tips Tuesday!!

Yay it's Tuesday!  Time for another great tip from another amazing blogger!  Today's tip is from Liliris @ Fourth Grade Garden!
Bumpy Seats
Do you have energetic kids in your class?  You know, kids who always seem to be moving around, tipping and rocking in their chairs.  Thought about purchasing yoga balls for students but don’t know where to store them? 
Help students get their wiggles out with bumpy seats.  They are less distracting than yoga balls, easier to store, don’t roll away, and yet still fulfill the same purpose – allowing students to move while staying seated…and without distracting students around them.
Bumpy seats go by various names: balance cushions, wobble discs, wiggle seats, etc.  They can be purchased at various stores and locations.  You can find them on Amazon  for just $13 a piece, and they come in a variety of fun colors!

Check out my blog, Fourth Grade Garden, for more fun tips, ideas, and freebies!

  1. Those seats are really great to have on hand. Luckily our school has some that students can use. We just ask our Special Needs teachers for them and *POOF* by the end of the week they are in the hands of the teacher!!
