Mrs. Johnson from Frederick MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wobble, Rock, Bounce, READ!

Help me give my students the gift of reading content/vocabulary rice materials in a flexible, comfortable way! Comfortable students are engaged students. Wobble, rock, bounce...Children need to move which increases oxygen and blood flow to the brain.

My Students

"Braver that you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."

I have the honor of teaching and working with a room full of extraordinary 3rd grade students.

Many of my students have faced challenges outside of school. A large number of my students are bilingual. A majority of my students live in poverty, yet every single one of them come to school each day ready and eager to tackle 3rd grade. My students are eager and creative learners!

My Project

My students are eager, energetic, creative and brilliant! They come to school each day ready to take on any challenge they face.

I hope to provide them with seating options including "Emotion Cushions" and "Chair Balls" that will allow them the opportunity to choose where and how they are learning as well as the ability to get their wiggles out.

Bouncy chairs and lapboards will allow them to do both. I also hope to encourage their questioning and exploration through rich reading materials. Scholastic Magazine will give them this opportunity in an engaging way providing them with knowledge of current events, Science and Social Studies topics.
