Help me give my students more creative options to choose from to utilize their creativity while taking a break throughout the day. These Magnatiles will also be utilized to help students learn their colors and shapes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am going into my third year as a special education teacher in a self-contained classroom. I work at a Title I school, and many of the students come from low-income families. I have eleven students who have a variety of learning disabilities and all have individualized educational needs. They are different ages and in different grades (Kindergarten - Fifth Grade). Each morning my students enter my classroom excited and ready to learn.
My students are as sweet as can be, and love learning, but they need a little extra encouragement and motivation.
In my classroom, my students are very active and require several breaks from class work throughout their day in order to be successful. During their breaks, they practice making choices by selecting a desired item or activity. This eliminates a lot of behavioral concerns in my classroom.
My students also need a lot of reinforcement to maintain basic skills such as colors, shapes, and counting.
These magnatiles will not only utilize their creativity while building with them, but also help students remember their colors and practice counting and naming shapes. These Magnatiles will be beneficial to every student in my class.
