Ms. Echeverry from Derby CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students ball chairs, a soft rocker, a medium pea pod, sensory body socks, and pillows.
One of my most loved aspects of working at DMS is the diversity among the students here. They have unique personalities and unique needs; however they all share a desire to feel success and support.
Communication is the key to human interaction, whether it is verbal or non verbal.
My students have a variety of communication strengths and weaknesses, requiring interventions focused on alternative & augmentative communication, aural rehabilitation, listening and recall, spoken language, social communication, and executive functioning. They all have their own ideas and opinions and my goal is to give them the tools to express it.
Afte many years of collaborating and co-treating with occupational therapists it is clear that a child's availability for learning is highly dependent on their emotional and sensory state of regulation. Our goal is to create a space for the students of DMS that they can use to maximize their ability to access their education in the academic and social world.
By funding these materials, ball chairs, a soft rocker, a medium pea pod, sensory body socks, and pillows, students will have a room to use as part of built in breaks, as a warm-up prior to initiating a lesson, or a break from their academic instruction.
Moreover, it will be used as a place to regroup when needed. As we know, emotional regulation is an integral part of success beyond the school walls and having a calming environment to do so can foster the use of coping strategies.
