Building a Foundation for Social and Emotional Growth!

Help me give my students a fresh start in our EBD classroom! The objects on our wish list will help teach social/emotional strategies, provide a calming environment, or allow students a healthy outlet for regulating emotions!

My Students

Describing the students in our class would take longer than just 2-3 paragraphs to write, due to the many wonderful qualities and unique challenges they face, however I hope to give you a little insight in just a few words.

These students are unique in that they come to school with a significant need for social and behavioral support, depending on us to help teach life-long strategies for their emotional and behavioral well being.

Students struggle to regulate themselves physically and emotionally in response to both internal and external stimuli. Learning to identify and regulate responses to emotions are a major part of our learning day!

Using a super hero theme, it is my personal mission to help these students develop and strengthen strategies that help them interact with their peers, and outside world in a more positive manner.

In order for students to feel more comfortable in their learning environment, we need to be able to meet them where they are. Providing alternative options to traditional classroom materials are a great way to provide a unique level of support.

My Project

The materials and supplies on our wish list will begin to add dimension and choice to our students with emotional and behavioral needs. The engaging literacy will help to teach students social skills and strategies that will apply to real life scenarios they encounter in addition to being a tool for teaching literacy standards.

Our students rely on a calming environment in order to help regulate themselves.

Several of the items we are looking for such as the light covers, diffuser and wiggle cushions will help students feel welcome, safe and calm.

The play type items such as the sand and building toys will be built into our daily classroom routine as healthy ways to take breaks from the demands of academic tasks. Allowing students to disengage for a few minutes will refresh their minds and reinforce healthy strategies for long term success!
