Help me give my students Legos so that they can be creative during their much needed sensory breaks.
My students are special education students with IEPs. They have learning disabilities that keep them from experiencing the highs of education that are a regular occurrence for most typically developing students.
My students are all unique individuals, but one trait they share is the need for extraordinary motivation to help them level the playing field with their typically developing peers.
When you have been identified with a special education label, it's tough to get motivated in school. My students are trying to do their best with the "limited" abilities and resources at their disposal. The majority of the students at my school are trying their best to do their best. Even though parents in this area work very hard, there's not a lot left over for extras.
My students with special needs have an attention span of less than 10 minutes for any activity. That makes learning the rigors of the 21st century college and career ready curriculum very difficult. They are most motivated by "sensory break time."
Legos will do wonders to motivate my students to be very productive in their classwork in order to earn the time to have a "sensory break" and work with these materials.
Every 10-15 minutes in our classroom, my special friends need a break.
They must change their location and their task in order to maintain their ability to focus and learn.
With these Legos, we will have endless possibilities for the "break" time and just 5 minutes "off" will allow my special friends to come back to their work refreshed and ready to learn once again.
