Mrs. Williams from Greenville NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bounce While You Work

My students need bouncy bands at their desks to stay focused beginning day one of school. Allowing the students to be active and fidget while working and learning at their desk is truly a game changer!

My Students

My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am hoping to keep learning authentic and provide my students with both creative and meaningful learning experiences.

All of my students have the desire to learn and my goal is to help them achieve excellence in learning.

I am a teacher that strives to ensure that all students are provided with a rigorous and personalized education that will prepare them to be life-long learners and contributing members in a global society.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! These bouncy bands will be placed at every student desk and in various learning centers around our classroom.

Students will be relieved to get out their extra energy, stress, and anxiety while they BOUNCE WHILE THEY WORK!

These will help all my students remain on task longer, complete more work, and feel happier because they will be able to bounce their legs up and down while solving math problems and writing narratives, opinion pieces, and informative explanatory pieces.

The donations to this project will help improve my students' focus and quality of work.

By implementing the bouncy bands, my students will begin to see themselves as focused learners. We will use these materials to aide us in the process of becoming life-long mathematicians and authors. As their teacher, I have done extensive research and reading on movement in the primary grades but I need your support to make this a reality in my classroom. Thanks you!
