Sensory Station

My students need an indoor trampoline and weighted yoga balls to use in our sensory station.

My Students

The body is an extension of the brain when it comes to learning. Keeping this in mind I strive to provide my students opportunities to engage their whole body when learning new materials. I find this helps students retain information and provides them a strategy for recalling new material.

Students in my kindergarten class are eager to learn and deserve the best learning environment I can provide.

I customize lessons to meet different learning styles and multiple intelligences of my students. The requested resources will give the students the added movement to assist in their learning and promote a proactive approach to helping students with sensory needs.

My Project

These resources will be utilized by students who seek active engagement while learning and for those who need sensory breaks throughout the day. Kinesthetic learners need to engage in gross motor activities in order to learn new materials. Students can practice counting to 100 by jumping on the trampoline, jumping to indicate the sounds in a word, or utilizing it for a sensory break. The weighted yoga balls can be used in place of traditional classroom chairs to help students be more attentive during classroom instruction. According to a 2007 Mayo Clinic study on improving learning, researchers found that movement while learning improves attentiveness and the ability to focus. The weighted yoga balls will allow students to move while listening and completing necessary desk work.

Donations toward this project will provide students in my class an opportunity to engage in additional gross-motor learning through movement; thus, improving focus and attentiveness.

The resources will allow me to implement a range of kinesthetic activities to broaden the scope of learning and to more effectively meet the needs of those students who require sensory breaks throughout the day.
