Ms. B's Safe Space

Help me give my students a calming environment where their behaviors don't stop their learning.

My Students

I teach an intensive resource room for students with Autism and behavior challenges. Each of my students follows the standard curriculum. They are in and out of my room at various times of the day based on the amount of support needed in order to access their education successfully.

My students may have a disability, but that does not define the amazing people they are and the goals that they are reaching for.

My students are learning to be successful in the general education classroom, both through academics and social interactions with peers.

My Project

I am asking for a variety of things to improve the environment in my classroom. The bean bags will be added to the reading area to support a loving and nurturing learning environment for students with special needs. In addition to this they will provide alternative seating for students as they read.

Individuals with special needs often don't enjoy reading and these resources will help change that for them.

The velvet fabric squares will be used to line the walls of a calm down cubby to meet students' sensory needs while they process their feelings and emotions. The blue fabric will be used to place in front of the calm down cubby for students who feel like they need time to themselves.

The rugs will be spread throughout the room to enhance the learning environment and to support students' sensory needs. Students with special needs benefit from having different tactile seating available.
