Elementary School Counselor Embarks on a New Journey!
Help me give my students a calm down corner with art supplies, sensory items, and other tools that they need to assist them in being comfortable in my office as their new school counselor!
I'm creating this DonorsChoose.org project to help get the items I need for my second office. Though I do not know my students just yet, I hope that the resources from this campaign help me to learn about my students more and help them to succeed in their social-emotional learning. Since I do not know my students yet, I hope to help them in a general sense of comfortability as they will spend their time with me individually or in a small group for group sessions.
The last 3 years, I spent my time in 1 building in a charter school. In my new endeavor, I am in two buildings within a district. Unfortunately, I only have one of each item since I have only had one office. I am looking for help to get my second office set up. I'd love to give my new students a comfortable space to be in as they get to know me as their new school counselor.
I've added these items to my cart to provide an inviting environment to the students.
I've noticed that lower light (instead of the fluorescent lights) help calm students and make them feel more relaxed. I plan to add low lighting so that my calm down corner which will have a book shelf, bean bag, art supplies and sensory supplies. These items will also be used for individual sessions and small group sessions (such as games, and fidgets). All of these items will benefit their time in my in my room.
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.
