The majority of the students in my classroom are non-verbal, that does not mean they do not communicate. These supplies will provide my students physical items to help communicate properly with not only our staff and their classmates, but also build the skills to communicate out in the community. With these items my students will be able to adjust throughout the day and be provided visual reminders of important events. The art supplies for this project will allow these students to express themselves through art. The students will be provided markers that they can grip, colors paper to attract their attention, and model magic to create structures and work on their fine motor skills. We will be able to display these projects up around school for everyone to enjoy. My students also have extreme behaviors that require frequent breaks and calming exercises. For this items, such as the Sensory sock, sensory chews, and soothers will allow them to calm down and learn new techniques to use out in the community. The students will establish their routines with these items, as well as express their feelings and frustrations properly. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student involvement in the classroom and positive behaviors, you will eventually increase their academic achievement. Students will be able to express themselves through art, and proper communication boards. My students will also be able to practice many fine motor skills and use some of these sensory items to promote positive behaviors. My students will love being able to express themselves through all these items. Any one of these items will be able to empower my students, but I truly need your support to make this happen. Thank you in advance.
