My Students

I'm a teacher at a Title I school, and my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I want my classroom to be a safe and fun place, but also a place of exploration.

I want to transform my classroom into a place of engagement and exploration.

My students deserve a classroom that focuses on center-based learning. They need and deserve the chance to see the world through as many different perspectives as possible.

My Project

The sensory table allows students to have a tactile way of learning their ABC's, sight words, and numbers. Currently, my students have limited tactile ways to learn during Daily 5. Making sure students are actively engaged in their learning is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given an activity that is fun and offers movement.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work when motion is incorporated into their learning activities.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional ways to learn. The sensory table will allow me to use sand for them to write ABC's and words. I can also have them dig for letters to see what they recognize and to see if they can build any words with the letters. The water aspect offers many ways to incorporate learning into another tactile station. All of these activities also will help with their fine motor skill development.

I have seen how important it is to have a station filled with tactile items in order to have active engagement. My students are highly motivated when they are doing an activity that they love!
