I teach second graders in one of the best rural schools in Oklahoma! My students are amazing, inquisitive and eager-to-learn. Although some may have difficult lives, my students come to school with smiles on their faces. They are supportive and cheer each other to success. Half of them go to Title I Reading, 30 minutes every day, for extra help.
My students are special because they have curiosity, creativity, compassion, and positive attitudes.
They are leaders who show love, compassion, kindness and bravery. They are truly amazing people. My school is wonderfully supportive of the active hands-on learning that we do in our classroom. I couldn't ask for a better environment for these students. We are truly a community!
This iPad will help my students exercise in the classroom when we have inside recess or when we need to take a brain break. Right now we watch a movie during inside recess. My students need to get some energy out during inside recess especially when we have to be inside two-three days. We will be having a lot of these during the winter months! We will be using an app called Sworkit. Sworkit will help my students with strength, agility, balance, and flexibility. With Sworkit I can set a timer for 5 minute brain breaks in the morning and afternoon each day. Brain Breaks are short, energizing bursts of activity that boost blood flow, send oxygen to the brain, and will help my students better retain information. Brain Breaks will increase my students' on-task behavior AND the amount of physical activity they get every day so it's a win-win!
"I have so much energy I can't think Ms. W" One of my students recently told me this during an inside recess day.
It broke my heart. We need to be able to move around! Please help us Sworkit in our classroom!
