My Students

My students range from 1st to 3rd grades and all have learning challenges due to anxiety, ADHD, Autism, Cerbral Palsy, or specific learning differences in reading, writing or math. I am blessed to be their teacher and want my classroom to be a calm, relaxing place for them to be able to learn and grow. I have been researching and looking for items to make my classroom more inviting and effective. Please help me to support the various needs of my sweet, exceptional students.

My Project

Many of my students have sensory needs or have been exposed to various traumatic childhood experiences, dealing with symptoms such as anxiety, fears, mood- swings, anger, sadness & guilt. I want my classroom to be a place where all of my students can find peace, comfort & belonging as well as a place to learn & grow. My project consists of designating an area of my classroom specifically for sensory or calming needs. I have proposed to purchase shades to reduce the harsh lighting, stress balls, fidgets, theraputty, weighted objects for additional sensory input, and a lamp to add a calming ambience. These materials will help my students to be more in control of their emotions and be better able to focus, engage in tasks, and to learn. Please help me fund this calming corner for my students. Thank you!
