Mrs. Henry from Iowa Falls IA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sensory Fun with Sand and Water!

Help me give my students a sand and water table with sand and accessories so they have a place for sensory play materials. The exposure to new textures makes for a fun sensory experience and a new way to present educational concepts.

My Students

I teach students with ASD and students with other disabilities in an elementary school setting. My students have a range of abilities and strengths! My students benefit from structured work spaces, explicit and direct instruction, visuals across the school setting, sensory integration and repetition in their instruction.

My students come to school excited to learn each day but require unique tools and strategies to access the curriculum!

I love that each day is a new and exciting adventure in my classroom.

My Project

A water and sand table would make a huge impact in the lives of my students. My students would have many different experiences with water, sand, beans, corn, and other materials.

When using the sand and water table, my students will be able to play, interact, learn how to take turns, and learn educational concepts in multi-sensory ways.

Having a sand and water table will also help my students meet their sensory needs. Having this sand and water table would create a fun multi-sensory way of learning with all of our friends together as a class!
