My Students

Our school is a small charter school in the heart of a beach town. The students are super sweet and excited to learn and explore new things! The classroom is filled with so many unique and energetic personalities. The students are super excited when they see anything new or hands-on in the classroom.

My Project

My students have been so wonderful this year. I want them to have a chance to open a wonderful gift that they can use over the break! Instead of students just watching television or playing video games at home they can have another option to keep them occupied. They can be more active with some of these fidget toys. These fidget toys come in all different forms in the package. This will also double as a tool to help with the ADD/ADHD students who struggle to focus in the classroom.
