Exploring My Senses

My students need sensory items to help during their day. These items help to focus their behavior and allow them to explore items in new and creative ways.

My Students

We are an at-risk preschool program, housed in a Title One elementary school. Our students are creative, imaginative, and curious. We are always looking for new ways to help us learn math, handwriting and science.

Most of these students are unable to afford the rich preschool environment that they deserve

My classroom is in a Title I school and made up of children with parents who struggle to afford the rich preschool environment that all children deserve.

Most students do not have access to learning materials, or even an adult to read to them outside of our classroom.

We want to build a rich, learning-based environment in which our students are given the ability to explore math, science, and art concepts. This helps foster the

My Project

These materials allow our children to learn in the best way possible. It allows them exploring using multiple senses, and as we all know no two children will learn in the same way. These beads, fidget toys, and bounce balls will allow the children to explore their descriptive language as they talk to their friends about what they are doing or feeling. It gives them social interactions and problem solving as they have to learn to play in a small area with multiple children wanting the same space and items as them. Some of these items will allow our children to focus during group times while allowing their hands to be busy.
