My Students

I am excited to have a wonderful group of third-grade students again this year. They are currently attending a Title I school and need all of the learning opportunities and materials possible. I love to see students excitement when their needs are met and they have the materials needed to engage and focus on learning.

My students are energetic and full of energy!

These students will work and grow together throughout their third-grade experience. They have already proved their excitement for learning.

My Project

Providing sensory regulating tools for students helps them focus throughout instructional periods. Wiggle seats help students move in their seat without disrupting the students around them. These seats help to calm hyperactive children. They provide an outlet for their extra energy while the small movement helps students focus.

By donating you will help students regulate their energy levels and take control of their learning!

The wiggle bands also provide an outlet for the students extra energy. Wiggle bands bands help to relieve tension in students bodies to help them focus better on the task at hand. Both items have benefits to help students with an abundance of energy to help them focus on reaching their learning goals
