Ms. Moskowitz from Endicott NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fidget to Focus

My students need materials to help them stay focused, like privacy partitions, stress balls and foot bands. We also need some school supplies like hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes after a long cold/flu season!

My Students

My students really love math--a rarity, I know! They like taking our topics and doing multi-day projects or presentations on them. My students come in to school with so much energy and love to engage in more activity-based learning.

They really love when math class involves games, crafts or any kind of project!

During these lessons, I get to know my students so much better and see their personalities come out in their work. So many of them are creative and hard working, and I love being able to bring that out.

My Project

My students are having a hard time sitting in desks for 40 minutes. I don't blame them! We have been doing a lot of activity based learning to help them get out of their seats during class, but they have a hard time focusing during parts of class when we need to be seated.

Allowing my students to engage their hands and feet in a non-distracting way will hopefully help them stay engaged and focused on math.

The foot bands and stress balls will allow them to release some energy in a positive way. The desk partitions will help those students block out the distractions that we can't avoid, like the door to the hallway and other students.
