My students are creative, thoughtful, and love to learn! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think creatively! They come to school each day ready to try new STEM activities and practice their leadership skills.
Our school is located in a rural area.
Many of their families often struggle to find employment and opportunity. They often struggle to provide the basic needs for their children. Many of our children come to school without school supplies.
The scuffling of chairs can be extremely distracting in the classroom. Currently, my students do not have anything at the bottom of their chairs. Each time they get up to move, the chair makes noise which causes a distraction to other students who are busy working. Tennis balls on chairs provide a quieter learning environment. Some of my students are very aware of smallest distracting sounds in the classroom. Once these students are distracted, it may takes several minutes to get them back on track. This leads to a lost of instructional time. Having the tennis balls on my student's chairs will help with the distractions. This will allow my students to stay focused on their classwork.
