My Students

This past school year was my first year of teaching. My students were so smart, creative and full of energy. 1st graders come in ready to go and leave school with the same energy. My students love interactive activities where they could move around and work together in groups.

Since my students are so interactive and full of energy, they sometimes have a hard time sitting still for longer periods of time.

I hope to raise money to help my students deal with their "wiggles" and keep their focus on learning and growing!

My Project

The stability balls I am requesting will allow my students to focus more on their learning rather than wanting to get up and move around. The stability balls allow my students to bounce their "wiggles" out when they feel the need. The donations to this project will allow the stability balls to be used at my guided reading table as well as my assistant's guided reading table

Let's face it, first graders are full of great energy and this is the perfect way to satisfy their need for movement and learning at one time.

I want to create a fun and engaging classroom, I believe this is the perfect way to allow my students to focus during group work as well as being able to move when they start to feel restless.
