Page Academy-"Visualize it!"
With the unfortunate emphasis on high stakes testing, graphing calculators are becoming essential to success in upper level math courses. With the increasing complexity of the coursework in higher mathematics courses comes the increased chances of a student making a minor error, essentially sabotaging their efforts. Fortunately, graphing calculators drastically decreases the chances for these errors as well as helps the students visualize the meaning behind the answers they develop. Finding the meaning behind their answers also helps the students relate their coursework to real world situations.

Angus Valley Elementary-"Healthy Happy Hearts"
This project will allow the students and teacher to get immediate data that shows the effort being performed by the student in fitness class. The students are taught about resting, target and maximum heart rates along with the importance of getting in the target and maximum zones every day for a certain amount of time throughout the year. This will show them that they do not have to be an athlete to stay healthy the rest of their lives. Part of the equation to staying healthy is getting that heart rate up through exercise or physical activities.
Star Corbin and Mandi Rivers
Angus Valley Elementary-"Pedal Pushers"
This project will allow the students to have the opportunity to move throughout the day while still participating in the daily classroom activities. The students are taught about the importance of getting daily exercise, but some days when the weather is bad they are not allowed to go outside and get that exercise. This will show them that they do not have to be an athlete to stay healthy. Part of the equation to staying healthy is getting that heart rate up through exercise. Scientists have also proved that movement during learning "wakes up" areas of the brain needed to retain and recall information,
Kevin Avey and Terry Calvert
Charles Page High School-"TI-84 Graphing Calculators"
Our request is to add enough graphing calculators to our classes, so we do not have to borrow from other math teachers. We want the students to become more engaged in the classroom and add calculators to the content of our lessons. A graphing calculator would help the students better understand the concepts in mathematics by allowing them to visualize the problem. Graphing calculators would also help us teach more efficiently and focus on the core areas needed to be successful on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Test, AP Exams, ACT and SAT.
Clyde Boyd Middle School-"Real Books, Real Power"
Getting kids to read for pleasure might just determine where they end up in life. Sounds dramatic, but this is the actual findings of research commissioned by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, a 34 nation pro-democracy, pro open-market council. Astoundingly the group reported in 2002 that reading for enjoyment is a stronger indicator of future academic success than a child's socio-economic background. Two recent studies also indicate that digital reading cannot deliver the same benefits including basic comprehension and ordering of events as that of a physical book. In other words, real books still yield real power, and I need books for my classroom. And not just any books, I need books that are of high interest to eighth graders.
Early Childhood Education Center-"ECEC Students Need to be on a Diet"
What we need is a Sensory Diet! A Sensory Diet is a "diet" of daily routines that incorporate calming and organizing activities for children diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder and other developmental delays such as Autism and Intellectual Disabilities. My Developmentally Delayed Pre-K students have difficulty regulating their senses throughout the day, leaving them unable to participate fully in the classroom activities. Each child has an individualized set of activities that are built into their schedule designed to help them stay focused and keep their body functioning at it's optimal level. The request is for Yogibo 6-foot Sensory Beanbag to facilitate providing sensory experiences to our pre-K students that will help them meet their sensory needs.

Using the unique technology with the LEGO writers, I will be able to help kick-start creativity and boost reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.
Angus Valley Elementary-"Active Seating in the Special Needs Classroom"
Keeping a child's attention on their school work or during therapy sessions can be difficult for teachers. Doing so when a child has autism, ADHD or some other learning difference can be even more challenging. Many of these kids have decreased muscle tone or a constant need for movement-based sensory input that contributes to fidgeting, slouching or soreness, making it tough for them to engage in learning. Active seating allows for movement to keep the body and mind more engaged by adding a little wiggle, bounce or wobble during every day seated activities.
Angus Valley Elementary-"Pedal Pushers"
This project will allow the students to have the opportunity to move throughout the day while still participating in the daily classroom activities. The students are taught about the importance of getting daily exercise but some days when the weather is bad they are not allowed to go outside and get that exercise. This will show them that they do not have to be an athlete to stay healthy the rest of their lives. Part of the equation to staying healthy is getting that heart rate up through exercise. Scientists have also proved that movement during learning "wakes up" areas of the brain needed to retain and recall information.
Limestone Technology Academy-"Fabulous Fabrication:4th Grade Electrical Engineers"
