We are a small rural school in North Eastern Montana. We have the opportunity to see for many, many miles with no mountains blocking our view. My students have a variety of family lives, and I enjoy seeing their smiling faces each day.
The students are excited about school and discovering new information!
These students come from a very small town with the nearest Walmart being over 90 miles away. They enjoy the smallness of our community and knowing all their classmates.
Our school has two technology labs, used by our K-8 students, that have nice headphones attached to each computer. We have put a little extra money into these headphones due to wear and usage taking it's toll on the cheaper versions. Unfortunately, with usage by our younger students, the headphone cords have become a sensory object for chewing. The teachers have been diligent about reminding students of the safety of chewing on these cords, but chew marks and ruined cords have still happened.
Providing an actual chew sensory item for young students to use, instead of chewing on headphone cords, would be a much safer choice.
We are finding the problem primarily in our K,1 students and I would like to be able to provide each of these students with a chew sensory necklace. This necklace could be used through out the day, to assist in calming and de-stressing these young students, which in turn helps the students become more focused, alert and ready for learning.
