A Soft Landing

My students need 3 carpets, for a soft area to play and unwind at several points during the school day. We have no carpeted area and only have tile floors.

My Students

Give us soft play areas! Please remember as a young child needing to be down on the floor to put puzzles together, play with trains or cars, or just read a book quietly in a comfortable area and support our project!

My students are self contained autistic support students in grades 1-3.

my students need breaks thorough out the day to take a breather from the academics to be social with their peers and play. They need structured areas to complete social tasks such as putting puzzles together with a classmate or a buddy or playing cars and trains with friends.

My Project

I am requesting four carpets to station around the room to provide my students with carpeted play and quiet areas to enhance the classroom and give them separate areas to use. The students will be able to read books in one area, play in another and/or work on fine and gross motor skills in the third area. Each carpet will have specific academic or social goal associated with the area.

My project is important to promote the social skills that my students need to improve on.

Each center will have a clear focus and provide the students with a safe and secure area to work.
