Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember the first day of first grade? My students are in that special place of just entering elementary school, and they are excited to get reading! We have a growing library and many opportunities for reading throughout the day.
The student body at our school is very diverse; many are immigrants and many come from low-income families living in high-poverty areas of the city.
My students face many challenges every day, both in and out of school. Together we work to create a classroom community that provides everyone with a safe place for quality learning.
My students come from many different countries, including Guatemala, Mexico, Venezuela, Ivory Coast, and Somalia, for example. One way we celebrate differences is through our literature and our discussions of what we have read. We share and we listen and take many different lessons from the well-loved books in our classroom.
These wobble cushions will help our team of 1st grade learners to get some exercise while they work. It is important for students to have a chance to get their wiggles out, which can actually help them focus even more.
Many students struggle with sitting still all day, and for this rowdy team of 1st graders, wobble cushions will give them exercise and stimulation which will simultaneously help them focus on their academics.
As the leader of this team, I want to provide my students with as many ways to succeed as I possibly can, and these wobble cushions will help do just that!
