My Students

I have been lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to teach in my school's 8:1 autism classroom and I could not be anymore excited! With this new classroom, my students have many different needs than the students I have been with in the past.

I am asking for sensory materials to create an environment where all of my students can thrive!

These amazing materials will be used to calm students, as well as keep them focused! This will allow for us to build the love for learning at their own pace.

My Project

These materials will allow for my students to have what they need to be successful! I try to instill a love for learning in my students, and when learning or focusing becomes difficult that love starts to slip away.

With these materials, my students are able to take breaks when needed, therefore making learning more fun!

All materials from this project will be centered around our 'relaxation station', which is one of my students favorite parts of our room! Here students can relax and get ready to learn again! I also will be covering all the lights in our room to create a more comfortable feel!
