My Project

Many of our students love origami, from watching video and asking others to show them how to create even a simple boat or something advance as a crane. Many of our student have ADHD or other various learning disabilities, which impacts their learning process, causing unwanted stress on a daily basis. However, something simple as origami has helped many of our students to find a way to decompress and regulate their mindset when learning. The goal for this project is to create an elective in which we could teach our students different types of origami and increase their growth mindset.

By donating to this project you will help supply proper books and paper for our students to learn how to do origami.

Materials such as books with visual images and the correct type of paper will only support their passion for origami. Origami has many benefits of hand-eye coordination, problem-solving, creativity, mental well-being, and many more. I've already seen how random scrap paper and a few videos have positive affect on them and with this project, it will only re-enforce a positive mindset and attitude.
