Ms. Allyssa from Sunnyvale CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

My students need a wagon and umbrellas for our long walk to the bus to keep dry while en route. The slime will be great for sensory input or a science project during rainy weather. The rubber balls will also be great for practicing throwing and catching.

My Students

My students are the ten colors of the Autism rainbow, each their own hue of personality. Some of them are nonverbal and are working on using sign language to communicate their wants and needs. The students come from different backgrounds and have different strengths, but they all are bright, energetic, and curious. Even on the challenging days, my students bring joy to me and my staff with their loving, youthful, and independent spirits.

My students are dynamic and sensitive.

Giving these students sensory input is essential to their classroom experience. My staff and I use sensory integration items to help the students be calm, focused, and comfortable so they can be ready to learn. We utilize therapeutic brushes, weighted blankets and vests, wiggle cushions, and sensory toys to aid students. It is wonderful to see a student smile and relax when they receive the special sensory attention they need.

My intention is to build an enriched environment to give my students a variety of play and sensory experiences. DonorsChoose.org can help with that!

My Project

During rainy weather, our kiddos can get pretty restless, so having fun activities to entertain them will not only keep them engaged, but allow them to let our excess energy. We can play with slime and practice throwing and catching with the rubber balls. Our kids also take the bus to and from school, so having a wagon and umbrellas to get them from point A to point B as quickly and as dry as possible would be amazing.

Our kiddos seek sensory input, and slime is a perfect way to get it.

Slime can be cool or warm depending on how much it is handled. We can also add essential oils, glitter, and food coloring to enhance my students' slime sensory experience. A few extra rainy day supplies will help keep our kiddos dry and engaged throughout the day.
