Help me give my students some organization with these colored vests, and one weighted lap pillow for anyone who is extra "figety."

My Students

This year I have more students than ever, and they are all excited for school and eager to learn. I've been able to use so many of the great materials I have received from my proposals to make the returning 1st graders love coming to school. And with my goal of making learning fun for everyone we're winning the Kindergartners over one day at a time as well!

These students in special education came ready for school on the first day thanks to early intervention.

I was able to start from the first moment and that inspires me to carry on this momentum throughout the year as we go on a journey together.

We love playing music and doing art together, and I love watching the students express their individual personalities in these areas. Everyone knows how to play, so if I can make learning feel like playing we're on our way to making lifelong learners.

My Project

My students need to work in small groups with close adult attention to really benefit from instruction. The most efficient way to accomplish this is by having them rotate through different learning centers in the middle of the day. Unfortunately, some centers are inevitably more enticing than others, which leads to students being tempted to leave the area to which they are assigned and join another group already in progress.

These pullover colored vests will make it easy for both staff and students know who is supposed to be where for each center.

In addition, I am requesting a weighted lap pillow to help calm students who may be extra fidgety, and for whom the colored vest is not enough of to reinforce staying in the assigned area.

And hey! We can use them for some team games outside, too!
