Fidgeting for Focus

Help me give my students some tools to help them focus and fidget productively.

My Students

My students are an amazing group of eclectic children, coming from all walks of life. Many are from socio-economically challenged homes, many from migrant families. The city is small so that most students who are permanent residents have known each other forever. It is a 'large family' of sorts. They all support each other and strive every day to be successful. And they are!

Despite humble home lives, these students are here every day ready to tackle their learning with rigor and excitement!

My Project

I am requesting some tools to help some of my students be successful in focusing on their school work while still giving them the option to fidget. I am requesting hand fidgets as well as several stability balls and one wobble chair to give them options to fit their needs.

Some students just need to be able to fidget productively in order to be able to focus on their work and be academically successful.

By giving them options, I can find the one to best meet their individual needs in the classroom. This will encourage focus and help them be successful.
