Increase Our Learning Time

Help me give my students the tools they need to make their learning environment the best it can be by providing "cool down" items, on-task times, or indoor recess activities.

My Students

My students each bring many different qualities to our inclusion classrooms. I co-teach with the general education teacher in classrooms made up of many fun personalities and traits! Students come from many different types of backgrounds and range from typically developing, special needs and gifted students.

We take pride in our learning and work hard to prepare for the future.

By supporting this project, you are touching the lives of not only this group but many more to come who are building their futures one day at a time.

My Project

Fidget tools, timed timers, indoor games and reading books will provide our classroom with more learning time. The students will be more engaged with the task at hand with a fidget toy to help them concentrate. The visual timers will have an impact on classroom management or individual students who need more direct intervention by placing them on their student desk.

Students will benefit on a daily basis, making this project a successful intervention day in and day out.

My students will greatly appreciate the tools that they will have access to and make their learning environment fit their needs.
