My Students

My classroom is a special education resource room. It services students with learning and emotional disabilities. It is also open to the general education student's as a quiet retreat from their busy day. The students that attend this classroom vary in diversity and economic status. The one thing that all the student's have in common, is that they need a place to be themselves and to feel loved.

Schools should be a safe environment with lots of available learning experiences.

This concept requires many tools to help students increase their learning exposures.

My Project

My early childhood classroom is full of movement. Many of my students have been diagnosed with ADHD or other disabilities. These students need a way to release their built up energy. Balance beams and tumbling mats are a great way to release that energy. The tumbling mats will be used daily for rolling and somersaults. The balance beam will also be available daily as a means to focus and have a moment of quiet as they walk. In return, the student's challenging behaviors decrease in the general education classroom setting.

Rich environments full of movement and creativity, foster healthy brain development.

These products will also help my students develop gross motor coordination, hand-eye coordination and focus. The bean bag toss is one game that encourages the development of the hand-eye coordination and focus. Through physical activities, these skills will translate into everyday learning. These products can make the difference between a stressful day and a successful day for my students.
