My Students

My 4th graders are enthusiastic, energetic, and ready to learn! They approach each day with open minds and look forward to hands-on learning. They attend a low income, Title I school where resources and technology are limited both at home and at school. For many of them, school is a safe place to escape the everyday hardships they face and truly be themselves. I only hope to provide every opportunity possible to encourage the importance of their education and personal growth.

My Project

My students come to school every day with smiles on their faces and positive attitudes toward learning. They are expected to engage in daily work and lessons, but are not given much time throughout the day to move around or be very active. They have to get all their "wiggles" out at recess!

After much research, I've decided to transform my traditional classroom into a flexible seating environment which includes 4 tables and several different styles of chairs that will allow the students to be more active!

I am requesting a set of stools, two yoga balls, two wobble stools, and inflatable discs for the floor. By providing these different options, my students will have a choice daily about where and how they sit to learn. This will encourage them to make decisions about their personal learning styles and to be independent problem solvers if the option they want is not available.

With choice also comes responsibility and when the students take more responsibility for their own learning, they will also achieve more academically, not to mention the added health benefits of being more active in the classroom! By allowing more activity, research shows that students are more likely to stay on task and engaged in work. Wobble stools and yoga balls help to strengthen the core, and having the opportunity to move about allows more oxygen to reach the brain keeping students more alert and engaged! With your donation, I will be able to provide so many opportunities to my students to improve their education and help train future problem solvers!
