All of my students have IEPs and are in a special education program. All of these students have obstacles that they need to overcome, but continue to strive towards learning and doing their best. Since school has started I have really been able to see their personalities shine through, I have to say I have some amazing students!
I am sometimes amazed at how willing they are to help me!
Not only are they great at helping me with tasks, but they are even better at helping each other. Since they relate to each other they are able to explain things differently, or pull interest that they share and really help one another understand.
A lot of my students need help staying calm and staying on task. The light covers will provide an environment that doesn't overload senses. Students tend to focus better when they're not stuck in a desk, especially during reading time. My students read every single day, so having alternative seating options during that time really benefits them! After adding this bean bag to my room, I'll have 3 in total!
For some students, if they can fidget, they can focus!
Having different fidgets in my classroom will help a majority of my kids stay focused! The fidgets that I selected go on their pencil, that means they can stay attentive even when they're not in my classroom. The fidget is subtle so it doesn't draw attention to them or make them feel different because no one notices!
