My Students

As a teacher in a high poverty school district, my students face challenges both in and out of the classroom. It is my job to create the most positive learning environment possible to minimize challenges in the place that I can influence best, our classroom.

My classroom serves students with specific learning, functional, behavioral, adaptive, and cognitive needs.

Many of my students have sensory processing difficulties as well as difficulties finding comfortabitlity in regards to seating and positioning. My students need a comfortable, safe, and accommodating environment to promote positive learning!

My Project

My students have many learning, sensory, adaptive, and emotional needs. It is crucial to provide them with the tools and resources to meet these needs in order to promote a positive and effective learning environment. These materials will help my students cope with their sensory needs and satisfy their overstimulation as well as their understimulation.

With these sensory tools, my students will be able to feel calm and comfortable and will be given the opportunity to learn in an environment that is unique and individualized to their needs.

For students with physical sensory needs, the sensory sack will provide pressure and physical stimuli for calming! My students with oral sensory needs will highly benefit from the vibrating chew animals as well as the dog tags. These items will allow students to get the oral stimuli they crave without chewing on clothes, paper, and inedible objects or biting themselves.

Other items such as the bubble timer provide a visual stimulus. In addition to these sensory items, other items included are those that will aid in fine motor skills as well as physical stimulus! These things include the snap beads and the life skills boards!

It is crucial for ALL students to have what they need in order to succeed.
