As a teacher, I am always trying to find ways to keep my class engaged and on top of all that is expected of them in a fun interactive way. I have a very active class this year, so movement is a must. I have many wiggle cushions, but have found that some students really do better with the activity learning stools. We tried another teachers and several of my students loved them. I feel with all the demands placed on our students they deserve to have the tools that would help them succeed. Therefore having alternative chairs for my wiggly ones is a must. Additionally, I am finding many learning apps that would be fabulous for various learners and would love to be able to utilize them. I feel that utilizing Samsung Galaxy Tablets would be helpful in learning centers for my third graders. I feel am passionate about having a classroom that will prepare my students for the future, but not at the cost of their present moment. I want them to love learning and to have all the advantages that I can afford them to grow as happy and healthy learners.

If I do not meet my goal I will purchase fewer of each item.

Thank you everyone! We are almost to our goal! 78% of the way there. If we go over the amount I will buy more for the classroom. My class keeps watching and they are so happy to see all the support we are getting. I would love to close this in 5 days. That way we can get our items sooner and begin utilizing them. Blessings, Mrs. Lopez and her 3rd Graders. :)
