Help me give my students supplies that help them feel comfortable in their space. Weighted dolphins for when they are upset and need to feel comforted. Seats to accommodate their restlessness. Token boards.
I love all my student however we have a behavioral classroom designed for students who have difficulty adjusting to a mainstream classroom. Some of these students have ADHD, Bipolar, come from dysfunctional families, have anger issues, etc.
They may be different from other students in their own special ways but in the end they need more love and attention than some of the other students.
They already feel segregated and judged by being placed in a separate classroom. It would be nice to have extra materials and supplies to make them feel special and value their class and realize just how important they really are.
These supplies, balance balls, weighted dolphins and motion stools will provide supportive and adjustable classroom seating and accommodations that helps students with behavioral disorders focus on their lessons and assignments. These supplies can help calm nerves, stress, anxiety, and allow them to process their troubles in a way that is comfortable for them so that they can succeed in the classroom. I have also added token boards to acknowledge and encourage positive behaviors in the classroom as well as fun math kits to keep them engaged while struggling with numbers. Please help me make this class both fun and comfortable for these students rather than a place where they feel restricted.
