Accommodations to Engage All Students

My students need noise canceling headphones and wiggle seats to help them calm and focus their bodies so they can be successful in the classroom.

My Students

By the end of the year, I want my students to be leaders of their own learning. I need to give them the tools and skills so they can be successful and engaged.

My students are excited about learning and very active!

They are enthusiastic all day long - they love working and playing together, singing songs, and reading. We do a lot of small group and partner work, so the noise and energy level can get high as they are working. A few of my students are still learning how to focus their energy and not get distracted.

My Project

My students need noise canceling headphones and wiggle seats to help them calm and focus their bodies so they can be successful in the classroom. My students will be using these materials every day. A few students will use the headphones during work time so they can block out excess noise to help them learn to focus, and all students will use the wiggle seats when they're working in guided reading and guided math groups. These tools will allow them to build stamina and focus despite distractions.

These materials will help my classroom so much.

I know that these accommodations will help a number of my students feel more calm, focused, and engaged as they learn and grow this year.
