My Students

The students at my school are from a rural farm community. We have a small school at the edge of a large corporation. Our students come from all socioeconomic backgrounds. We are lucky to have great families that work hard and are involved in our school events, but we don't get a lot of extra funding from the state. This is due to our school not qualifying as a Title I school. Title I schools have a higher level of free and reduced-price lunches than we currently have.

My sweet kiddos are hard workers, but they have lots of extra energy and thrive during hands-on activities.

We try to keep moving around our classroom several times throughout day to help with this. I also have tried to incorporate a flexible seating environment to keep their little bodies wiggling while engaged in learning while at our seats. We have had a lot of success when we use hands-on manipulatives and activities. I love to provide learning opportunities that will get my students moving, thinking, and stimulating their learning by creating! What better way to learn about kindness then to keep moving and help others at the same time.

My Project

My classroom needs The UNICEF Kid Power Bands. They are like a Fitbit for kids, but do not track locations. These bands simply keep track steps and physical activity. The information is reported to UNICEF and after a certain amount of steps are taken then food packages are unlocked.

Our school wide goal is kindness this year and what better way to spread kindness and physical activity, then by promoting my students to walk and be active while unlocking food packages for malnourished children throughout the world.

This activity helps children be able to see what their own physical activity is doing to help others. We can create an classroom account for just our class and challenge each other to walk more or even create teams like boys vs. girls or any other combination the kids want to motivate themselves all while helping others.
