Movement Breaks in the Winter!

Help me give my students opportunities for movement breaks and tape for our classroom! With winter rolling around, outdoor movement breaks will be limited, I am hoping this product will help with that!

My Students

I am a second year teacher hoping to make a great impact on my students' lives. I work in a co-taught setting and I want to make sure that my 21 fourth graders have great opportunities to learn with necessary materials to make their learning better. Having a larger classroom, my group of students have various needs that I want to support throughout their fourth grade education.

I am excited to develop my students into a group of students that not only learn, but enjoy learning!

With your help, I can ensure that my students will become a group of life-long learners.

My Project

Winter is coming and that means that movement breaks are going to be limited. Students will have limited opportunities for movement breaks due to weather. I am hoping this elliptical will allow students to have seated movement breaks indoors.

During the winter, students will not have as many​ opportunities to go outdoors, run around, and get the movement that some of my students need.

I am hoping that this elliptical is something that I can use every year for my students. Movement breaks allow students to take a moment to focus on the material at hand. The tape will be beneficial for classroom materials!
