Roll It Up and Move It Out!

Help me give my students a slab roller. We have been using rolling pins to make our slabs in pottery class but many of the students don't have the strength or coordination to do this on their own.

My Students

Our school is a school for children on the autism spectrum. My students are excited to learn and work hard to do their best but they come with a variety of learning needs and challenges. Pottery class can provide these students with an important opportunity to have valuable sensory input while having the opportunity to be creative and express themselves. They enjoy working with clay but sometimes have difficulty with the fine motor skills they need to properly craft the projects. Having the extra tools will give them the confidence to build quality projects.

My Project

My students need help with so many things throughout their day. Many lack the upper body strength to roll out a slab of clay with the rolling pins that we currently have in our classroom. The fact that they cannot do it independently discourages them. I would like to give them the ability to be independent on one more step in their projects, the proper tools can mean more independence and better quality projects. This slab roller would give my students the ability to create projects by themselves and speed up the process as well so they can truly create!
