My Project

My students are special education students with behavioral and emotional disabilities. They have big emotions and big hearts. The games and activities will help give a variety of ways to connect in class and to help them with their growth.

My classroom is often a safe space for my students, and I want to be able to help them connect with one another and create a community in my room.

The card games and activities I have chosen help kids open up in a fun way. The colorful baskets is where I will keep their games, sensory objects, pillows and helpful books.

Ms. N.
Grades 6-8
