My Students

The students in my school are amazing little people with big hearts and the drive to be successful. They are wonderful helpers and desire to feel special and loved. My students absolutely LOVE school. They know that school is a safe environment and a place where they will be loved and nurtured.

My students attend a Title 1 school and are from homes that don't always have the resources to provide their children with the tools that they need to be successful.

These children deserve nothing but the absolute best education to ensure that they can have bright and successful futures.

My Project

The resources that I have chosen my project are Wiggle stools and bouncy bands for chairs. Research shows that children that are more active demonstrate better focus, faster cognitive processing, and are more successful memory retention and by keeping the body active promotes mental clarity by increasing blood flow to the brain, making activity vital to both learning and physical and neurological health.

I will use these items to provide students opportunities to wiggle and to move while learning.

The goal is provide the students with an avenue to move during class to increase student success and achievement while also promoting the importance of staying active.
