Parachute For Fun and Learning

My students need a parachute and an instructional DVD.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students long to be able to form friendships and learn how to get along with others. This is one of their greatest challenges, but every day they come to school ready to try it again! This parachute is going to help them to learn the benefits of working together.

Our students are all Special Education students who work very hard to have productive and successful school days.

Our school serves students who have severe emotional and behavior disorders and students with autism. Our students come from all over Chatham and Effingham counties. They come to us when their behaviors prevent them from being successful at their area schools. At our school they learn coping strategies and skills in a safe and forgiving environment where second chances are endless. Their special needs make keeping up with their regular ed peers in academic areas very challenging, but they work very hard and any measure of growth is recognized and celebrated. They also have tremendous difficulty forming appropriate relationships with others and we are always looking for new and exciting ways to help them to be able to better get along with others.

My Project

Our elementary students have played with one of these parachutes before when someone brought one to our school to show them. They were absolutely enthralled! It brought out a camaraderie that is not often witnessed among these students. They want so badly to get along with others, but just are not always sure about how to go about it. Playing with this parachute the students have to work in unison to make it work. The concept of working as a team and helping your classmates will be emphasized as we learn how to do amazing things with this parachute! I am fairly certain that our older students will get a kick out of it, too!

Learning how to get along with others to successfully complete a task is something that these students will be able to use in so many aspects of their lives.

Playing with this parachute will make them happy. Having "parachute play" on the day's agenda will inspire the majority of them to make sure they are getting their work done! Although I have the elementary students in mind, our school serves K-12 and I would bet that many of our students would have fun using it.
