My Students

GWE is located in a rural community, We are a Title I school, and 100% of our students receive free breakfast. Our school is comprised of Pre-K through fifth grade students. Our students are enthusiastic learners.

As the school counselor, it is my job to teach students productive and healthy ways to self-regulate.

When the sensory systems are out of whack, the brain has trouble regulating. Research has shown that the ability for young children to self regulate is associated with higher, future education goals.

Movement throughout the day in the school setting may help support skills such as time on task, and academics. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain's pathways, which lead to the child's ability to complete more complex learning tasks.

For many kids, sitting quiet and still through an entire school day can seem like an impossible task. I am asking for support to provide a sensory pathway in our hallway for our students to provide them the necessary tools to be successful.

My Project

Having this Sensory Hallway Path will allow students the opportunity to get their wiggles out. When students are fidgeting, unfocused or having trouble sitting still in class, teachers can take them out to the sensory hallway and allow them to go through the path.The idea is that students will burn some energy and return ready to learn. Sensory exercises are helpful for kids who have processing issues, stress, anxiety and ADHD.

Students are developing their self-awareness and self-management skills when using the sensory path.

Students use their muscles and breathing and spatial awareness to get focused on the path. Afterward, they walk away reset, refreshed and ready to learn.
