Mrs. Jennings from Cincinnati OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sensory Integration for Inclusion!

Help me give my students tools to focus their attention when in the general education environment. The fidget toy flippy chain is currently my most requested fidget, but I only have one available for use per day.

My Students

I teach students in elementary school with Specific Learning Disabilities. They require intense, targeted, and individualized interventions in order to close the gaps and access the general education curriculum with their same aged peers. My students are included in the general education classroom as much as possible, but many struggle with attention and require a tool to help them concentrate.

Fidgets allow students to focus their excess energy in one area so they are able to concentrate on the lesson.

As a fidget user myself, I teach my students how to use their fidgets as tools and not as toys. When students begin to identify if they are using fidgets as a tool or as a toy, they begin to notice their personal needs and differentiate what they need. This also allows students to begin to verbally advocate for themselves in class.

My Project

I work with students to individually identify their needs while in the general education environment. Multiple fidget types have been requested as different students find which different tools most useful/effective for them. It's also possible for one fidget to be most effective on one day, and not effective the next. Having choices and options help students to get to know themselves and their personal needs as well.

I coach students on how to use their fidgets effectively as tools for focusing energy as opposed to using them as toys to avoid engaging in the lesson.

Fidgets often become toys and distractions for the student using the fidget, or the students near the fidget-user. This doesn't have to be the case. I am an avid fidget user myself and I use myself as a constant example for how to use these tools effectively and subtly.
