Our first-grade classroom is filled with lots of smiles and an eagerness to learn! My 22 students come from different socio-economic backgrounds. Our community lacks business to provide jobs for our community members. Most of the students come from low socio-economic backgrounds, but education is important to all the families. Our school is the base of the community.
My students are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners.
They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers. They are our future, and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career.
Sensory materials give our brain a break and a sense to recalibrate. Using the sound sticks will help the students breath and focus. This release of energy allows the students' brains to process the information learned and the new information that is going to be presented.
My fab firsties are hard workers.
My students need an area in our classroom where they can go and recalibrate their brain. The sensory objects create a calming for the students. This sensory area will be utilized by all students that need a brain break. The mazes will allow the students' brains to refocus for learning to take place.
