My goal is to create a learning environment that meets the needs of my students by providing a variety of seating options. For many students sitting still in a traditional classroom chair for an entire school day presents a challenge. Without an opportunity for movement and a way to get their wiggles out, their productivity and concentration can be inconsistent. WittFitt Oodle stools allow students to improve their posture and core strength and optimize their attention and productivity constantly throughout the day by providing a way for students to wiggle while they work. Research has shown that there is a link between movement and academic performance. "Children who are raised in stimulating, active environments produce more neural connections in the brain" (Bruer, 1991). In addition to the benefit Oodle stools provide students, they are also versatile. The three piece design offers multiple seating arrangements at different heights with or without the ability to rock. Oodle stools would give my students an opportunity to wiggle while they work.

This gripping pencil is designed specifically for a child's hand with a unique Y design where the index finger cradles onto a comfortable surface, allows the hand not to have to grip the pencil and actually encourages the fingers into the correct tripod grasp. This reduces tension and stress throughout the fingers, hand and wrist. Students can write longer with greater ease. Great for anyone who has to write a lot or tends to squeeze the pencil too tightly. Mechanical pencil with thick #2 lead that never needs sharpening. Erasers on side of pencil. 3 ?" long.

I am requesting Handy Mats And Black Magnetic Letters. One side of these unique magnetic word-building mats has marked spaces to place the letters, along with an area for building words. The other side is blank. And both sides are dry erasable! It comes with black plastic letters that offer maximum contrast against the mats to support focus and concentration. They can be stored in the sturdy, compartmented case. Little hands can easily grasp and move these letters and chunks to make and break words, learning how words work. Because the word chunks are in one piece they scaffold early readers to see the patterns in words, making their reading and word construction more efficient and productive. Includes the most common rimes.

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn!"- Benjamin Franklin Using math manipulatives help make abstract math concepts concrete for our 1st grade students. Students benefit from using hands-on manipulatives to understand math concepts. These math manipulatives are recommended in our district-adopted math curriculum. They will be used everyday during guided math as well as math stations.

Studies say physical activity and learning go hand-in-hand. I would love to give my students the opportunity to wiggle while doing their seat work! The variety of seating would keep things interesting in order to better achieve the whole-brain teaching philosophy we strive for here at Cline Elementary. I believe the wiggle seats would help promote active learning throughout the day and keep my students' growing minds engaged all day long.

Help our class complete our class set of iPads with newer, more compatible iPads. First graders use iPads daily to listen to stories being read to them, to read their own leveled books and answer comprehension questions, to explain their thinking, to create products and practice skills. They are able to share this learning in real time with their parents and family members via the Seesaw app. With an updated version of the iPad, students will continue to use this technology in our classroom without interruption due to outdated programs and equipment. I am requesting one iPad to help me reach this year's goal of completing our class set with updated iPads. This grant also includes a protective bump armor case.
