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

Read and Ride

My students need the Seated Strider to address the needs of the kinesthetic learner. It will allow them to integrate movement into a normally sedentary activity.

My Students

My students are special. They are inquisitive and energetic learners. They love challenges and are always willing to try new things. They come from a wide range of differentiated backgrounds. There is an ELL (English Language Learners) population as well as students who are receiving free or reduced lunch. Some of my students come from well traveled and enlightened family situations but many others have very few opportunities.

Using creativity to encourage reading is the means to inspire students at all levels

My Project

I would like to purchase a Strider Desk for the media center. It would add an opportunity for movement into the learning environment thereby meeting the needs of my kinesthetic learners. This Strider would allow my students to channel their energy and allow them to stay focused on the tasks at hand by reducing fidgeting and in some cases ease classroom disruption.

Research has determined that sedentary sitting for periods of time can be detrimental to a child's physical and mental development.

While I strive to provide movement through the day, the Strider would be an excellent way to ensure that even the most unfocused and unattentive learner would have an opportunity to express their need for physical movement.

In addition to facilitating the kinesthetic learning styles, the Strider would burn calories, improve cardiovascular health and improve the student's overall state of mind.
