Mrs. Power from Show Low AZ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sensational Sensory Support!

My students need an established sensory room to alleviate their stress, anxiety, anger and negative emotions. When the sensory input and sensory output are balanced, They Are SUCCESSFUL. All these items are for sensory output.

My Students

My students are very diverse in all aspects of their lives. Each of them are in the special education program and need a more structured environment to be successful in their academic and behavioral success. Their abilities and their needs are from one extreme to another. Although they are very different, I find they have some similar needs as well. Each of my students want to feel accepted, loved and safe.

Each of my students are loved for who they are and for what they bring to the world.

Their success is dependent upon their actions each and every day in social, emotional, and academic engagement. Building relationships and trust is the foundation to their life skills and success in their future. I try and build a relationship and environment that is conducive to their specific needs. Many of them come from difficult situations and all they want is to feel safe and wanted. My goal is to provide the classroom where they can come in and just be themselves. With the right supports, these struggling students can find success in this setting.

My Project

The students in my classroom have emotional, behavioral, and academic needs. A balance in their sensory input and output is essential to their daily success and interactions.

A sensory supported classroom will provide the much needed support for each student to learn coping skills.

These skills will help them work through their individual needs, breakdowns, and hard times. Each student struggles with individual needs and requires their own supports. I find that stress balls are great for while I am trying to keep their attention during direct instruction. I love to work with small groups together to support their social interactions, and the stabilizing balls would be amazing for this purpose. I also think the stabilizing balls would be great for incentives, exercise, focus support or strength straining. Providing the appropriate sounds, lighting and fidgit items will allow a bad day to turn around and become a good day.
