My students come from a low-income/high poverty area of NYC. In addition, these children are all diagnosed with special needs. Although they deal with difficulties both in and out of the classroom, they are always excited to learn something new and expand their knowledge.
As their teacher, I like to prepare them for the real world.
My students are working on preparing for high school and beyond.
In order to help them do this, we're working on developing life skills!
My awesome middle school students enter the classroom with a ton of energy each and every day. They're always eager to complete their work but sometimes, they need a break or a little help in order to be able to complete the task.
The fidgets will help them focus on completing tasks by keeping them focused.
In addition, sometimes the energy in the room is too overwhelming for some students. These students benefit from the noise cancelling headphones.
These tools will also help them manage overwhelming situations throughout the building—in the gym, cafeteria, at recess, in the auditorium, etc.
