My students need hands on sensory materials, such as beads, balls, and beans, to search through to stimulate their psycho-motor development with materials.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds in an impoverished area of South Carolina. With theirs heart to explore, learn and inquire, I want to provide the best environment to allow my students to thrive. Learning is more than pen and paper, tablets, and books. Learning comes from doing.
I am looking to inspire my students with sensory learning stations to explore inside the classroom.
Sensory stations provide an opportunity to develop cognitive areas of their brains and leads to a lifelong desire to learn and explore.
In learning numbers, alphabet, and shapes, students will gain an extra touch by using sensory tubs and gel pads. These materials will allow my students to have a new experience and feel the sensation of different sensory mechanisms.
Kindergarten students come with a limited vocabulary of how different items feel.
These materials will help expand their vocabulary while exploring through tubs of items. They can discuss with their class neighbor and develop the communication aspect of conversation building.
The gel pads can be used to trace letters and numbers, as well as shapes. These items are cross-curricular and will stimulate the atmosphere of learning in my classroom.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
