My students need stand up desks to focus, attend, and move more throughout their day in order to optimize their learning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
"Movement is essential to learning. Movement integrates and anchors new information into our neural networks. Every time we move in an organized manner, full brain activation and integration occurs, and the door to learning opens." Carla Hannaford
Please help open the doors for my students!
My students range from ages 5-9 in a low income community.
Each student is unique in what their strengths and challenges are. Many of my students have limited resources outside of school. However, they come to school each day to do the best that they can. Many of my students have attention/hyperactivity challenges.
By having standing desks, the students will be given another way to be able to partake in the classroom while getting their needs met. This will help them to concentrate and get the "wiggles" out but also continue to learn and grow. Students will also learn how to self-regulate and know when they need to stand and move in order to optimize their learning.
Donations to this project will greatly impact the students for the better.
It will give them another tool to use so that they can continue to be in their classrooms and build peer relationships as well as continued learning.
