My Students

Between 7 teachers we have approximately 170 students. They are a very unique and diverse group of learners. Each of the classrooms are also very different. Some classrooms are rather large and allow for opportunites to get up and move frequently where others lack the space for the students to move freely.

We have a very active and animated group of 7th graders this year who always want to be moving.

Each class is 80 minutes long and we try to incorporate as many brain breaks as possible to allow the students the chance to recharge before moving on to another part of the lesson. Despite having brain breaks, the students still struggle to remain focused throughout the day. We want to change this!

My Project

Sensory toys will allow for our students to take charge of their learning with subtle movement throughout the school day. While completing classwork, students will have their choice of sensory toy to keep them alert and focused.

Our students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive in class when they are given a sensory toy.

The products that we have chosen will give our students a choice in a fidget toy which will help them concentrate on their classwork. These toys will be extremely benefical for those students who just can't focus or need extra movement! The items are small enough to be held in the student's hand without distracting those around them.

We have seen how having access to a sensory toy makes a differece in our student's work and attitude during school!
