My Students

I have 10 kids in the class with different degrees of needs. I have four that talk and other students that are trying to talk. These students are wonderful to be around. I want them to get the best education as possible. I love coming into class and seeing all their smiling faces. I love my students. One girl I have is so fun to have around she makes me smile and she brightens my day. On top of them being wonderful there are some sensory needs that help them calm down and then return to focused activities. A sensory ball pit will help them in getting the sensory input they need then they can come back to the daily activities.

I want them to get the best education as possible. I love coming into class and seeing all their smiling faces. One boy has an amazing laugh that makes me start to laugh with him. He does not talk but I know what he needs, he make sure I know. I love the kids. This sensory Ball pit will help my students to have an area to go calm down and relax.
