Free to Move

Steven Hawking once said ,” We eat to move and move too little”. So often we tell children that they must sit , stay still and listen but it has proven to be ineffective in the classroom. More likely than none , kids are itching to get out of their seats while in class. That is why I am a fan of standing desks .  They provide students with the ability to move around without impeding on their ability to do work. It is amazing how the classroom environment has changed over the years to adapt the needs of the individual student vs the traditional expectations of the classroom. My only hope is that this change continues to progress as we learn more about the needs of the younger generation. Standing desks are especially great for children with ADHD. By using the standing desks, instead of telling a child  with ADHD to constantly sit down, we are thinking about ways to help the child vs helping ourselves
