Activities For Children

Help me give my students permission to explore other worlds, access to art equipment, and varying materials to explore their social, emotional learning via distance learning. Our children need to process what is currently happening with support.

My Students

As a school psychologist, I am provided the opportunity to work across the district with many different students who are often struggling. Every child I have worked with has exhibited grace in their own specific form and reminded me how each child has a story, an inherent lesson to share, and a reminder that time is often the most beloved gift we are able to provide.

I love that my students are diverse, resilient, hilarious in the face of adversity, trusting, and they often willfully allow help once trust is built.

I am humbled every day by their color and spirit. I have found the easiest way to support children is to allow them to explore academics, creativity, art, and emotions through games, artistic endeavors, and access to materials.

As someone who provides foundations for children to further evolve in their emotional resiliency, access to different materials is necessary to find creative solutions within my home to subsequently help the children I work with from their home. Furthermore, once school resumes, all items will be able to be further used within the school setting. My overall goal is to expand on ways to organize emotional identification and academic priority charts.

My Project

I work with my children who are often struggling and facing adversity. Many children grow up in circumstances without someone able to model/implement emotional identification and subsequent behavior choice. Creativity allows children to better understand this and better understand themselves, be it through drawing, coloring, games, academic challenges requiring resiliency, and most importantly, a stable, continued adult who listens to them when in need.

I need activities, art supplies, books, and workbooks to help support children during this time of unknown; to provide a space to explore, learn, create, and adventure to learn utilizing creative avenues and sense of curiosity.

By utilizing materials myself, I am able to set up activities, teach emotional awareness, help with academics, and support our students during a very difficult time.

Children are natural detectives, creators of questions, and bold in their sense of appreciation for the differences in this world. I would like to further nurture this natural proclivity. My goal post-distance learning, is to implement all materials within the school setting, as I know they are needed and will help further the goal of educating the whole child.
