My Students

The special needs students I serve are mostly non-verbal, and have a variety of communication, motor and academic needs. Their disabilities make it difficult to learn in traditional classrooms. Movement is a critical part of their day. When it is raining out it's difficult to shake our sillies out. My students are delightful, have wonderful smiles and a desire to learn. Although their learning styles vary, they all benefit from being part of a traditional school where they can interact with typical peers and access curriculum specially designed to meet their needs.

My Project

In Oregon it rains a lot in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. My students need frequent opportunities to access gross motor activities in our classroom during rainy days when outdoor play isn't accessible.

Climbing, crawling, balance items and balls for catch help improve our strength, and make us "learning ready" during lessons.

Play equipment also gives us an opportunity to practice social skills like turn taking and requesting.

Classroom space needs to stay organized for quick clean up. An indoor playground box with wheels helps staff and students work together to transition the room from indoor play to learning time!
