Crisscross ApplesauceAs the school year is coming to a close, some children (and teachers) have a tendency to get increasingly wiggly. Please remember that sitting crisscross apple sauce is very difficult for our little ones, especially for prolonged amounts of time! (Have you ever tried to sit like that for any length of time? I don’t know about you, but my legs go to sleep!) Also, keep in mind that prolonged sitting without physical breaks is not developmentally appropriate for our preschool kiddos.

Please click on the link below to see some of the many alternate seating positions that can be used instead of or in addition to crisscross applesauce. In the information by Marianne Gibbs, Ed.D. OTR/L., you will also see that the technique of “w-sitting” is not appropriate and can cause some problems down the road if used extensively.
