Back-to-school is upon us and due to shrinking school budgets often there are not enough classroom supplies to go around. Your generosity and these suggestions and supply lists below, will make a difference for local students and teachers.
Keep in mind it’s not just the pencils and paper kind of tools that they need, tools for emotional regulation are equally important.
Emotional regulation tools help kids get to a focused calm place more quickly – and help to enhance the learning environment and experience for all students. Once learned, these skills are with them for life.
Gift a teacher and classroom with the emWave® Pro. Kids quickly learn to shift into a state of focused calm when needed – and they love the interactive games. Teachers are able to be more effective when the class can come together more quickly.
Purchase a backpack and fill it with school supplies then drop it by a local church or nonprofit in your area that has an initiative to help underserved students in your community. Be sure to tell them if the backpack is for grades Pre-K through 4 or grades 5 through 12.
