My Students

I am teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade self-contained special education this year. My students have multiple disabilities including Severe Emotional Disturbance and Behavioral Disorders. These kiddos need hands-on, interactive learning. I want to offer them the most engaging classroom so that they will be unstoppable while achieving their goals in my class! These students need to nurture their creative spirits with hands-on activities. I want to provide cross-curricular instruction and your support will go a long way in achieving our goals!

My Project

My students have emotional, behavioral, and learning disabilities that make school a difficult place to be. I want to provide them with some coping skills to help them focus on their learning. This will help them improve their literacy skills as they will have increased attention and engagement during instruction.

My students struggle with body regulation in my classroom, the body sock, vests, weighted blanket, and weights will help them feel safe and help them cope with the anxiety and stress they feel while at school.

The Guide Write tool is an amazing resource to help my students with making sure their letters are correctly sized. Theses tools will improve my kids overall wellbeing, as they will have a positive physical outlet to cope with the emotional and sensory stimulus overwhelm they often experience while trying to learn.
