Hooray! This project is fully funded
We are a class of 31 students from an urban county in New York State. Our students are enthusiastic learners and are curious about the world around them. Many of our children come to our school having experienced multiple traumas and have sensory processing and emotional needs. Our classroom has worked hard to build a caring community supporting each of our unique needs.
We have found that our students learn best when given the opportunity to integrate movement and multi-sensory experiences into their school day.
Through body stations and whole group instruction we strive to build in kinesthetic learning to meet their needs as they grow.
All of our students enjoy exploring movement with their bodies. Through the use of the duck balance boards and the trampoline, our students will be able to develop rhythm, pace and stamina as they explore literacy and mathematical concepts. In our classroom, we have observed a direct correlation between movement and curriculum content resulting in academic growth.
We are striving to be a classroom that meets the sensory and emotional needs of our students which often impact their ability to focus academically.
The products that we have selected will help them develop self regulation, focus, and will increase mind body connections. With the addition of these teaching tools, our students will be able to access their learning through purposeful moments.
