But in practice, with more than one in a class, it can get a little messy.
But that's what I think is the problem littlek -- distrubting the wiggly kids throught the still population. Group them all together for a wiggly class and they might all do really well if the day is designed around the need to wiggle.
Just for example - because I know this isn't practical -- Mo is pretty good at math but ask him to sit down and do a sheet of math problems and it can an hour for him to complete it. Take him out on the golf course and he can calculate birdy, eagle, bogie, double bogie from par in his head in seconds.
There's no reason you couldn't teach math to the wiggly room by letting them shoot trash into the basket and calculate answers.
Sure it's unreasonable to do this when you have 2 kids in each class who need to learn this way but if you group them all together it isn't so unreasonable anymore.
Also, I can really identify with that noose making kid -- I'm kind of like that. It doesn't mean that I'm not working on the problem, most likely that's when I'm really
working on the problem. People I used to work with always knew when I was "on to something" because the place would be littered with paper clip "sculptures".
