I am a teacher of students with special needs in a self-contained ESE classroom. I teach in a low-income/high poverty school. Most of my students receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
My students have various special needs, ranging from moderate to severe Intellectual Disabilities, Language Impairments, Autism, Physical Disabilities, and Medical needs that make learning challenging on many levels.
Despite the many challenges they face, I strive to create a nurturing, stimulating and meaningful educational environment where my students are encouraged to reach their full potential.
These fun and stimulating fine motor and sensory tools/activities will give my students the practice they need to strengthen and develop their basic fine motor skills, which many of my students lack. By doing this, it will further develop their independent/self-help skills, as well as their writing skills. My students also require additional forms of sensory input and stimulation to meet their sensory needs. My students need lots of support, repetition, and reinforcement to help them develop these fundamental skills, and these tools will provide an engaging, multi-sensory approach to accomplish this, so that they may reach their full potential.
