We're Tangling Our Way Through Fourth Grade!

Help me give my students the ability to use these tangles to move their fingers and relieve anxiety while still being active listeners. Students will learn how to be successful learners while still having the ability to move.

My Students

My students are very energetic and come to school excited to learn. I teach 32 fourth grade students who are ethnically diverse, with over half of my class being English Language Learners. Despite having many obstacles to face, my students come to school each day ready to learn.

My role as a teacher is to help each child reach their full potential.

I believe that when a child is given the love, support, and encouragement needed, they can excel at anything.

My Project

Your donation will allow my students will be able to use these fidget tools called tangles to move their fingers and relieve anxiety while still being active listeners. Students will learn how to be successful learners while still being able to accommodate their need to move. Fidgets like the tangles allow students to manipulate their energy through moving but not disturbing others around them and still being able to listen.

These small, but beneficial tools allow students to move their hands while still actively listening in class.

There are many studies that show fidgets help students concentrate on the information being taught without constant distractions.
