Creating, Building, Inclusionary Success

Help me give my students a Silhouette Cameo cutter so I can make skill-based social stories and bulletin boards for my school. I am requesting LEGO toys for social skill groups and sensory tools for overstimulated students.

My Students

Tools for School Sucess

I am a school social worker at a small rural elementary school in central Utah.

I work with students K-5. Most of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

It is important to provide a welcoming environment, inclusionary to all. I hope to provide various tools to help students to maintain their self control, focus, and help them find success as students.

My Project

The students that I work with experience grief and loss, truancy, family issues, unmet mental health needs and much more while trying to succeed in school. Utilizing the Silhouette cutter will create skill-based social stories and school-wide SEL themed bulletin boards. It will be used to cut positive phrases for the students to use during their school day. The LEGO people will be incorporated in a LEGO Social Skills group that addresses family transitions, problem-solving, and growth mindset.

In addition to the Silhouette cutter and Lego people, I am seeking donations for sensory tools (sand art and storage, jelly fish lamps, noise canceling earphones, flexible seating options, etc) to promote social, emotional health, and student inclusion.

All of the requested sensory materials will help students manage their emotions and overstimulation at school.
