Therefore, it is not too surprising that Kaden is having difficulty sitting still in class. He's a very young kindergartner and he has a first year teacher. His teacher is not young; she has a few children of her own. However, she doesn't yet have a lot of experience in a kindergarten classroom. It's been pretty challenging, and on the advice of friends with more experience than the teacher and I have, we're going to try out the Wiggle Seat.
From Google's first search result link:
If your child is full of energy and fidgets and wiggles, sitting in a desk chair for prolonged periods of time may be a particular challenge. Kids who have trouble sitting still may wobble their desks, rock their chairs, spring out of their seats, or otherwise do things to annoy the teacher without even realizing they're doing it. How to keep your child comfy on that unforgiving wooden slab? Here are five quick solutions to talk over with your child's teacher and try for everybody's relief.Solution number one is a cushion generally called a Wiggle Seat.
Anyone who has been around Kaden more than a day or two knows his favorite color is yellow. So, I Amazon-ed us a yellow wiggle cushion. He'll bring it with him to class after thanksgiving break is over, but I figured we'd try it out at home during mealtime in the interim.
I'll keep ya posted.
