My students are a burst of loving and colorful energy. I run a special education classroom and my students are in major need of more sensory toys and activities in our classroom. I have many students running out of my classroom due to their high sensory needs. I strongly believe my students would benefit from fine and gross motor equipment. My students mean everything to me, and they have huge hearts. They are high energy, fun, sweet, creative, and motivated.
6 out of my 7 students have autism, most of the students are in major need of sensory breaks throughout our extended school day. The items I have chosen would offer our students a break between academic rotations, and it would also promote imagination and physical balance. This exactly what my students are in need of. These tools and toys would offer my students higher body regulation, brain breaks, Physical movement, and lower anxiety. These items would also decrease behavior problems within the classroom, and would also offer my students more classroom activities. My students are very burned out on the limited activities/toys given by the school.
