My Students

When you work in Kindergarten, there is never a dull day. My class is full of energy from the moment they walk through the door until they are picked up at dismissal.

My class has 23 students and is an inclusion classroom with 2 teachers (regular education and special education), as well as, 1 para-professional.

They need their daily hugs, just as much as they need their pencils, crayons and glue sticks! Sometimes they need a few extra reminders about our classroom rules, but don't we all.

My Project

Our students need a place in our classroom where they can go to take a break when their frustration levels get high. In Kindergarten, we often have to teach social and coping skills.

Having items like flexible seating, sensory toys and the added bonus of storage in the seating, will allow us to create a "Calming Corner." The storage box seats will be a place where the students can go for that much-needed break before their frustration gets the best of them.

They will be able to redirect their focus through sensory play by using the sensory sand, the theraputty or just by watching the motion bubbles or glitter sticks! This donation will help us teach them to cope with their emotions in a healthy way, in order to help them in the years to come!
