My Students

I teach a first through third self-contained special education classroom. My students are behind in their academics and social skills.

They are an amazing group of students who come to school excited to learn and interact with each other!

Over the past year and a half we have seen the impact of COVID-19 in many ways. We have students who are a bit nervous to come to school because of things that they have heard. We have also seen the impacts of students not being able to play with their peers in ways they have in the past which has impacted their social skills.

My Project

These sensory tools, play items, and other classroom essentials will help students in our classroom to develop skills and be successful.

Since COVID-19 we have found that our students have required more support in their sensory and social emotional needs.

In our classroom we work on many goals many of which include emotional regulation and developing social skills. These items will give us the materials we need to manage our emotions and calm down when needed. Other toys will help us teach our students how to play appropriately in many different circumstances during our daily structured play time. Other items will help us as we do art projects and many other lessons.

Sensory tools will help students to remain engaged in learning and be able calm when they are feeling overwhelmed or frustrated. Items for play will help our students to develop their social skills as they learn how to play and build with their classmates. Other classroom essentials such as headphones and markers will help our classroom to run smoothly.
