Settled between rustic mountains and urban city, my students come from a variety of backgrounds. While they may not have the same home lives, they are all avid learners who choose to come into our building each day to learn.
As intelligent learners who are out to change the world, my students have the potential to be problem-solvers, earth-shakers, and mountain-movers.
They are interested in the world around them and want to see the impact they can make.
As the oldest grade in our building, they are the tone-setters for the rest of the students. Their passion for learning, willingness to learn from their mistakes and fresh look on the world make them a crucial part of our school.
With so many students who need to move, these items will help my students stay active and assist them in focusing on hard learning. Studies have shown, and I've personally found, that writing, reading, and test-taking are infinitely easier for all of my students (kinesthetic learners, especially) when they have a safe, quiet, and appropriate way to move in the classroom.
By donating to this project, you will not only be helping my students stay active during difficult cognitive tasks, but you will also be assisting them in finding a love of writing and reading!
By being able to move their physical selves when they are trying to do difficult introspective cognitive tasks, students will have greater success in my classroom. When their bodies are busy, their minds are allowed to focus on the tasks at hand. This will help develop physical well-being by encouraging them to be active as often as possible in their everyday lives.
