Mrs. Harris from Newport News VA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Healthy and Well with Sensory Friendly Tools

Help me give my students the ability to stay well and healthy with sensory friendly environments. A washable lap pad, wipe-clean center and non-reusable fidgeting toy will help immensely.

My Students

I work at an amazing school that is completely dedicated to student success. The group of second grade students I have this year will benefit greatly from the opportunity to read, write, and learn in an environment that supports the developmental needs of 7-8 year-olds.

My students are incredible individuals with various needs and strengths that I strive to differentiate for on a personal level.

The progress my students have shown from their needs being met by generous donations is evident in the data and formative assessments I collect daily.

My Project

My project involves the availability of a sensory friendly environment for my students with special needs. I have chosen a washable lap pad, movement rotation, seat and hand-held assistant to fill these needs. All of the items are washable, and wellness-based for the specific needs of my current kids. Unlike other children, whose wellness needs are taken care of on a basic level, some students need extra help staying safe, and clean. Most supplies in the school are not meeting the needs or nonexistent. Please help my give my students washable and safe materials so that they can get sensory input and stay safe and well throughout the school year. We have purchased the cleaning materials for these items, and just need the items to complete our safe, clean and effective environment for ALL.
