Bright Lights!

My students need 6 light filters to soften the fluorescent lights.

My Students

Imagine sitting in the classroom, wishing you had sunglasses! The fluorescent lights in our classroom can cause distractions from learning. The students complain that it is too bright and their eyes hurt.

The students in my classroom are amazing kindergarten students.

They love to come to school and are eager to learn. Many of the students are ADHD or have sensory needs. My goal is to create an environment that meets the needs of all of my students. Light filters would provide a calm learning environment for students with special needs, regular education students, and the teachers.

My Project

Classroom light filters will reduce eye strain and create a relaxing classroom environment. This type of environment will maximize the learning experience for all of my students, especially those struggling with ADHD and sensory needs. The filters are made from fire resistant fabric and hang from the ceiling with magnets.

By contributing to this project, you will help provide light filters to our classroom.

These filters will create a calm, peaceful environment to help my students learn. Thank you for considering a contribution to this project.
