Ms. Carroll's Library from Waynesboro VA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read and Ride!

Help me give my students an outlet for some excess energy by exercising their bodies while they read to exercise their minds! Students can come in to use the bike any time as long as they are reading.

My Students

I am the librarian at a Title 1 school. For many of my students reading is not second nature. Our school is working very hard to foster a love of reading and I'm looking for ways to make this even more exciting.

Our school also has large number of students who struggle with focus and need as many outlets as possible to move in an acceptable way.

I am hoping to offer a solution to both problems at the same time.

My Project

Many of my students struggle to focus and succeed in class. A lot of that is because they have too much energy and not enough opportunities to move. I feel strongly that if they had a positive outlet to get some energy out and move they would be able to return to class better able to achieve. Many students already take "breaks" with other teachers in the school as helpers. I think that this project will give them another option when they need to work of steam.

As the librarian, I am always encouraging our students to get excited about reading.

I would like to have this Desk Bike set up in the library as a place they can come work off some of that energy while they read. I really think that this Read and Ride station will be a huge benefit to countless students at our school and serve two purposes at once.
