Ear Protection for Sensory Learners

Help me give my students the ability to focus on their learning. These earmuffs will allow students to block out distractions as they work independently on projects.

My Students

My 2nd graders are an interesting bunch of children who love learning. They are embarking on a variety of STEM journeys where they are learning to love Science and Technology. They are investigating not only the world around them, but also their own thought processes as they interact with each other.

My 2nd graders are excited to learn new things and to build upon their existing schema to enrich their lives.

They engage with each and every lesson and work to excel in all areas, even the areas they find difficult. They look at each task as an opportunity to challenge themselves.

My Project

These earmuffs will provide students with the ability to focus on their learning. They will be especially important for students who have sensory needs and who are easily overwhelmed or distracted by noise in the classroom. These earmuffs will help them block out the input that pulls their focus.

By providing my students with the ability to focus on their work, these earmuffs will make a difference in their educational success.

They will help students of all levels and in all subject areas as they work towards building their understanding in each curricular area. They will be a tool for students to access as they need them.
