A child who can’t stop moving might be trying to get his brain going.
Do you have students who never sit still? Are they constantly turning their heads, moving or wriggling? Do they delight in rocking on the back legs of their chairs? But then, when they’re working, they suddenly droop over their desks?
These children quite often have no appreciation of the space their bodies take up and will invade others’ without realising it. Think of the child who jostles other children when sitting on the mat or joining a line, because he just didn’t realise that he wouldn’t fit into that small space. They might even have been labelled as ADD or ADHD children.
