My Students

My classroom is made up of 15 students, ages 3-5, who have varying disabilities. These disabilities impact their social skills, speech and language, cognitive ability, and physical development. During a typical day in my class, we work on everything from communication skills to social/play skills to academic readiness skills, such as learning letters and numbers. Regardless of disability, my students are eager to learn and get so excited when they master a new skill. I try my best daily to be my student's number one cheerleader and make them feel like they are on top of the world. A small task, such as zipping up a jacket, can be a monumental event. No matter what, my students know I have high expectations for them and they try their hardest to be their best everyday.

My Project

Adding the Crocodile Interactive Wall Panel to our sensory center area would create an interactive area for my students with delayed play skills. Many of my students' interactions with play items are delayed. They pick up a toy and drop it quickly. They step on toys. They have not learned to enjoy functional play time.

With this crocodile sensory wall panel, it could all change.

The variety of activities would sustain their attention, the activities will help them explore music, science, math and self-discovery concepts by exploring sound, color, and movement. And all the activities would stay on the wall! This will also encourage fine motor skill development while engaging all senses!
