My students need dividers within my room so that they can focus and be away from others peers in my space. They also need calming items like a rocker chair and fidgets for self-regulation.
I work with an awesome school community where arts and academics is the focus. The students I support come to school each day with their own challenges, as many have been exposed to trauma that can come through daily in their coping with trying to learn.
The students are in both elementary and middle school grades.
Many have siblings at the school and community members who know who they are. When they are having a tough time in their day, they come to my space to calm down. They often need to "save face" in front of their siblings and/or friends so I try to offer that to them the best I can.
The room dividers will help me structure the open space so that students can have an area away from their peers when they are upset and need to calm down. The room I am in is an open space classroom and students can become more sad/angry from each other by even looking at them when they are upset. I also need the rocking chairs in order for the students to use them in order to self soothe when they are anxious or sad. I work with a lot of students that have experienced trauma and they need breaks in my space in order to be successful during an entire school day.
The stress balls are great for the students to squeeze and limits their destruction of property while teaching them a more positive self-regulation strategy.
The spiky rings give them tactile input on their hands and again help them reduce their destruction to property.
