TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need playground balls in order to obtain the physical activity level of a typical toddler.
Hello! As a first year teacher with very limited resources I am looking to give my students more resources to play, learn and explore!
My students enjoy moving to music, reading, playing with lots of interactive toys and building with blocks!
They are ready to explore every aspect of life I can provide for them and I am eager to get the supplies to full fill their curiosity.
The majority of my students come from a single parent household with financial struggles. This prevents them from getting strong meaningful life experiences that could enrich their learning and puts them at risk for falling behind so early in life and struggling through school. By getting this project funded I am hoping that I can make up for some of this loss with meaningful experiences in the classroom.
We are requesting a set of balls, 3 in 1 sports academy, and doorway tunnel that will provide the gross motor and vestibular stimulation necessary to prepare my students to sit quietly and listen or complete independent work. These materials will not directly teach my students new skills, but they will help prime my students for learning in all content areas and with many daily living skills.
For example, while I'm teaching a lesson on number naming, one of my students may be rolling around on the floor having difficulty maintaining their space and needing gross motor activity.
If we are granted these activities, I can have my aide work with that student to get some physical energy out while I continue teaching. Finally, the student will return to the group or independent work area and be able to sit and focus to learn or demonstrate a specific skill.
The donations for this project will improve my classroom by reducing the amount of behavioral issues, because I will be able to provide the appropriate stimulation that my students need, but cannot voice, due to their disabilities.
With less behavioral issues, we can increase our learning and time on task. I'm looking forward to seeing my students happier and ready to learn.
