My Students

Our school is one of the oldest in the district. We have a diverse population and provide academic support to many of our students. We are at Title I school. We are able to provide assistance in academic and learning areas. These areas include reading, math, writing and social/behavioral skills.

My students are unique, inspirational and special.

My students all face many challenges and come from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds. My students receive services in the Special Education Resource Room. Including movement into their learning time can help them to focus on their learning.

My students continually teach me new ways to tackle problems and find solutions. Incorporating movement into my classroom has allowed them to engage in learning as well as learn to identify when they need to move to help their focus.

My Project

Using a tactile object to provide some focus and calming strategies for my students. Students with difficulties in attention need to move and have some ways to manage their need to move. The items you can help provide will help my students learn to manage their need for movement in our resource room.

Many of my students need movement to help them focus.

Using small items such as fidget objects can be a non distracting way for them to continue to focus while providing smaller movements. Using bean bag chairs can allow a safe space for a student to calm down and take a break. Wiggle seats and ball chairs allow students to move while engaged in their learning.
