My students come from an urban, multicultural, low-socioeconomic neighborhood. Our school population is extremely diverse and contains many at-risk students.
Many of my students do not have caring parents, a home with adequate living conditions, supervision, discipline, or enough to eat.
The only thing my students share or have in common is school. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
It is very difficult for my students to "sit still" and continue to learn all day. This project would allow my students to stay on task longer and feel calmer when they are completing classwork and taking tests. I strongly believe that they will feel happier overall and less stressed.
This project would help all of my students who receive extra support in the resource room for Language Arts and Math.
Students can bounce their feet and stretch their legs while they work. Students can release their extra energy, anxiety, frustration and boredom- without disturbing others. My students will be able to get more work done when they have a way to stay calm and focus to complete their class work and tests.
