Mrs. Hicks from Pfafftown NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Nothing but Positive Vibes!

My students need Fidget Bands to help with their focus during instructional times when they must stay in their seats. My students also need more first grade texts focusing on school rules, character and manners.

My Students

I am a regular ed teacher with a new group of first graders coming in August. I teach in a school with wonderful students (over 800!) and an amazing and dedicated staff. I love the enthusiasm these children have for learning. First graders are so entertaining and keep me on my toes daily! I love teaching in a variety of ways and especially through music, dance and motion, as well as games. I believe my students learn better that way.

My Project

My students come to me with an array of personalities, learning styles, and at times, learning disabilities. They are sometimes required to sit and work at their seats for long stretches of time. This can be difficult for small children, especially those with attention issues, and hinders their focus. Fidget Bands will be an extremely useful tool for my students to release nervous, antsy or excess energy in a positive way.

While using Fidget Bands to work on self control and to focus our excess energy in class, it would also be helpful to have a variety of texts that focus on how to behave in class, how to behave kindly towards our friends, and focusing on manners and good character.
