My Students

I have to say I have an amazing classroom this year. The students are excited for the upcoming school year and very sweet and kind. They have been wonderful in helping each other out.

My students all have an IEP, so they have learning disabilities but that does not discourage them from wanting to learn.

They are eager learners and do not let their disability hold them back from succeeding and growing. They have made tremendous strides from where they started. I teach at Title 1 school in a full Special Day Class for Special Education and these kiddos persevere everyday!

My Project

All these materials will build on the tools and strategies we have started to implement with mindfulness. Now we would like to take it a step further with incorporating self-regulation. In some instances, the students just need a tool to help with their attention/focus while doing independent work or small group work that doesn't disrupt their peers and helps them increase their learning opportunities and to succeed. One simple tool for this could be the stability cushion that can assist the student who is always up out their seat or needs to be constantly moving. The resistance bands provide students who are active to maintain focus but to also help meet their gross motor needs. The different stories and board games help in teaching and incorporating the self-regulation strategies to compliment what they are already doing with yoga and mindfulness. All these tools help provide a calm and welcoming environment to help all the students with different learning modalities to achieve success in their own way.
