Help me give my students an outdoor number path for our sensory garden.
I teach elementary school students with various intellectual, physical and sensory impairments. My students are energetic, loving and enjoy learning at school. Each student in my class has special learning needs. They benefit from hands on activities and using his/her senses to learn about the world. They love to learn by playing games and enjoy friendly competition. The students often need brain breaks when we are doing a lot of seated work. They also enjoy being outside and exploring the natural environment. I think my project can meet these special needs!
Sensory activities help students regulate their emotions, refocus attention and make learning fun. I have a fenced courtyard right outside my classroom that I would love to turn into a sensory garden. The materials in my cart can be used to create a number path for hopping and using large muscles. We can also do math facts while we exercise! The arch domes would also be great for color recognition, following directions and gross motor movement. Our courtyard is a very convenient location for a sensory garden. I am excited about the positive impact a sensory garden will have on my students.
