TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students exercise bikes, desk cycles, and other exercise equipment so they have an opportunity to move while they learn.
I work with some pretty amazing kids! As a Title I teacher, I have the pleasure of working with students in kindergarten through second grade. This gives me the opportunity to see our young learners grow throughout the years. A high percentage of our school population qualifies for free or reduced lunch. Unfortunately, our area is also experiencing the negative effects of the opiate crisis. Some of our students are dealing with battles that no child should have to deal with.
Nevertheless, our students are world changers.
They are our future! We work tirelessly to provide our students with the best experiences we possibly can.
Every child has the need to move. A child is a natural ball of energy. Students in our district get 30 minutes of physical education each week. Recess times never seem long enough and, during the cold winter months, gross motor time is even more scarce. Sadly, many students do not get much physical activity outside of the school day either. Students sit for extended periods of time and, despite brain breaks in the classroom, some students need more ways to appropriately release energy. All students are unique and come to school with their own stories. The world and life around them can cause the child to experience anxiety and stress. This anxiety and stress can carry over to the classroom in the form of behavioral concerns, anxious behaviors, or restlessness.
A physical movement distraction can be just what a child needs to help ease anxiety, avoid a meltdown, or get their brain recharged to maximize their learning.
I am requesting equipment that can be used in the creation of a sensory or movement area in our school. This will be a place that students can visit when they need a break. The desk cycles can also be used during our small group times, giving the students a little movement during their reading or math instruction.
Thank you for support in making a movement area at our school!
