“Wiggle, Move, Learn” Grant Benefits Students

Ridgeway Elementary School teachers, Miss Cain and Mrs. Sandlin, along with Student & Family Support Specialist, Mrs. Callahan, were awarded a Harry T. Wilks educator grant for this school year. Their grant is called “Wiggle, Move, Learn” and they were able to obtain and provide alternative seating, fidgets and other items for students to have bodily movement while learning.
The items provided by the grant included balance balls, wiggle seats, under desk pedals, desk bands, and balance boards. These resources give students the ability to release energy from their bodies which allows their minds to better focus on learning.
