Mrs. McCann from Benton IL is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a sensory path in our classroom to help build nerve connections in our brain's pathways!
I teach in a high poverty portion of Southern Illinois. My students are special needs kiddos requiring some additional resources to aid them in being successful. These students are learning to cope with disabilities such as autism, emotional concerns, physical differences and many other ailments that make it imperative that I teach them self-help skills at this young age. The students in my class require a great deal of assistance such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, adaptive equipment, and numerous accommodations throughout each day.
This project provides the supplies to create a sensory path within our classroom. A sensory path is a great way for students to work out their sensory needs to decrease anxiety and calm anxious minds.
Sensory different students require various outlets to work out their frustrations.
Allowing these students to utilize these paths allows for various sensory output to aide in in brain development for these individuals. A sensory path is also a great outlet for students with occupational therapy deficits to work on balance, concentration and spatial awareness. A sensory path created in our classroom will benefit our students as they become aware of their senses through play!
