My Students

Our class is made up of the future of Ohio. We are a 5 star rated class through Step Up To Quality. The students are ages 4-6 preschoolers. Half of the students have special needs of all types and the other half are typically developing peers, who often have various needs themselves. The school is a STEAM focused school in a downtown area made up of 99% African American children, many of whom need an educational and positive preschool experience to ensure they are successful in future school years.

These are energetic, ready to learn, hands on, full STEAM ahead students who inspire us to be greater teachers every single day.

We have many challenges with special needs students mixed with general education, but all students in our class are capable of learning, just in different ways with different modalities. Every student wants to achieve and be successful and we believe every student can! It's our passion to help them love school and achieve greatness.

My Project

We are requesting sensory items to help satisfy our preschoolers' need for sensory regulation and stimulation. We are requesting multisensory materials, such as light filters to help take the brightness off of the fluorescent lighting in our classroom and Play-Doh for tactile stimulation.

All items will be used to help bring students into a regulated state by stimulating their senses in a positive way and alleviating some of the external stimulants that often hinder their ability to focus due to sensory overload.

This in turn will help them achieve greater success within the inclusion setting, where over stimulation occurs not only for students with special needs, but general education students as well.
