My Students

My class consists of 30 unique individuals and I teach at a public charter school of fifth grade students. I have students who are in special education and students who need additional help for learning in differentiated ways. My students are sweet, kind, and eager to learn every single day.

My class has students who strive to become future engineers, scientists, educators, artists, and professional athletes.

In order to help my students achieve their future goals, I find research based solutions to help all students learn in the classroom that works for each child individually.

My goal is to help students by creating an environment that fosters hands on and project-based learning. To make this a reality, my students need access to learning tools that have scientifically proved that it works in other schools.

My Project

Students need tools to learn. Just like a pencil is needed for writing, students need tools for concentration and refocusing in the classroom. Fidget tools are used in the classroom to provide sensory input in a less distracting way. They help improve students' concentration and attention to daily lessons by allowing the brain to take out the extra sensory information (e.g. listening to a lesson in the classroom, paying attention to a math equation).

By allowing my students to choose a fidget tool for learning in the classroom that is specific to their needs, I am giving them the ability to comprehend what is best tool for them to learn.

They need differentiated learning, similar to teachers needing to differentiate their instruction to teach all students.
