My Students

I am an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I have 11 amazing students in my room! Students in my room range from age 3-6 with varying levels of abilities (speech, ASD, cognitive impairment, and other health impairments). Students in this room generally spend 1-3 years in ECSE until they move on to kindergarten. I do the best I can to prepare them for kindergarten!

Families in my classroom come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and range from a traditional family, to single parent homes.

We all have one thing in common. We want our students to have every opportunity to succeed!

My Project

A sensory table (sand and water) is a great addition to a special education classroom. Students with special needs often have sensory aversions and are resistant to certain textures. A sand and water table would be a great way to introduce different textures to students. For example, the table could be filled with sand and sand toys for a great sensory experience. Since spring is right around the corner, the table could be filled with seeds, dirt, and planting tools for hands-on experience in the classroom. Water and water toys is another fun sensory experience as well.

A new sensory (sand/water) table in the classroom will help my students have real sensory experiences!

We have been unable to update and/or replace aging materials in the classroom. My current sand/water table's drain is broken, so it it not able to be used appropriately. Please consider donating to my very deserving students!
