My Students

My students are fun loving, energetic, and unique fourth graders. Our school is located on a military base and the majority of the students We each are primarily from military families. Our students face challenges at a younger age than most people and they overcome the constant changes that come with the military lifestyle. Our students flourish in calm, cozy, welcoming environments. The mission of our school is to educate our military-dependent children, no matter what their backgrounds or previous school experiences, to fully achieve their personal and academic potential through the acquisition of core knowledge and the skills of analysis, problem-solving, communication, and global responsibility.

My Project

The students in our full-inclusion classroom would benefit from the multi-sensory educational supplies because learning is already a difficult process without having special needs that might make learning a little bit harder than the average fourth grader. Children with disabilities have an uphill battle to access curriculum and simple modifications to the environment can have huge impacts on student learning and achievement.

By installing these blue light filters the fluorescent light distraction will drastically reduce distractions & anxious feelings.

The various seating arrangements (balls, donuts, stools) will help my students that need movement for sensory purposes. The clipboards and other flexible materials will allow learning mobility in our classroom, our students will learn in an environment that is set up for their success.
