Observations from the teacher & principal
- The introduction of adjustable desks into the classroom was enthusiastically embraced by students, with standing behavior increasing over time.
- Kids “love” the LearnFit: students intuitively move at their own comfort- or need-level appropriate to the task at hand, helping them manage their energy levels.
- Increased movement by students during the day has proven NOT to be a distraction to instruction.
