Get Sensorized!

My students need blocks, beads, and other hands-on materials to enrich their math lessons.

My Students

Most of us take our sensory processing for granted, but in my classroom we take our sensory needs very seriously. Once our sensory needs are met, we can learn!

My students are the most wonderful children!

They are very sweet, loving, and so dedicated to learning. Unfortunately, they live in Section 8 housing and their lives are filled with trauma, drama, and less than desirable living situations. Although they are faced with huge obstacles at home, they know when they come to school they are safe and loved. Their sweet smiles reflect that.

My Project

Because of the home lives of my students they have many sensory needs. When a child's sensory needs aren't fulfilled as infants and toddlers they have reactions throughout their childhood to meet this need. I have many students who must takes breaks from the typical "paper and pencil" style learning to manipulate blocks or create a project with beads. Even digging through a bucket of beans searching for small toy items will meet this need. Once their sensory need is met they are again able to focus and concentrate on learning. These materials will be used for my "sensory station" to help those children who need them.

Anytime a student has a need, big or small, it is my goal and passion to meet it.

These blocks and beads will meet the sensory needs of children. These items will be placed in my classroom free to use anytime a student needs them. After just a few minutes manipulating their fingers on these objects they will be more successful in the classroom!
