Fidgets to Function

Help me give my students supplies such as vibration wristbands and various fidgets that will help them to focus and stay on task when they are struggling to keep their mind from wondering.

My Students

My school has a unique group of more than 90% Title I students, which is the largest Title I population in the district. Many of our students are homeless and we try to help their families find some stability through school life. We are the hub school for ELL students in the district, which creates a lot of diversity within our walls. We have students that not only speak Spanish but also other languages such as well. This diversity makes teaching a little more challenging than being in any other school in our district. As a PreK - 5 school with 24 to 28 students in each class, we have about 500 students in our school. For Wyoming, this is a large elementary school, which also creates different challenges.

Our students have very little resources to come up with any extras, such as snacks, school supplies, backpacks, etc.

We use every resource we have to help students succeed in the classroom. With all of the diversity that is within our building, it is imperative that we use every minute to learn with great intensity. Our school motto is, "The Home of the Hardest Working Students in ...."

My Project

These materials will help my students to be successful in the classroom when medication is not a choice for students who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Giving students a choice of fidgets to use so they can have their hands moving and still allowing them to learn.

All student have the ability to learn.

It's our job to help them find the best way for them to learn no matter what kind of learner they are or deficits they might have. Giving a student a watch like device that will buzz to remind them to get back on task will hopefully give them the skills to get in the habit of doing it with out the watch.
