My Students

Who needs a sensory break? WE DO!!!! Help us get materials to provide much needed sensory breaks in our day.

Our classroom is a special needs preschool room.

We love to play! Our goal is to get ready for kindergarten. Many of our students will go to a specialized instruction program for elementary. Our students are ages three to five. All our students have special needs. Our school has approximately 200 students. We love fine and gross motor activities. We follow a typical preschool curriculum and focus on each child's individual needs. We also have a K-12 multi-disabled student body.

My Project

We LOVE to play. We need a sensory table to manipulate and explore. The materials such as beads, noodles and jelly beads will provide different sensory textures. We can't wait to feel the different textures and use all our senses to play. This will be one of center rotations each day. The students can chose to play in this area and explore. We will have different themes throughout the year and add animals and toys to go along with the theme. The tweezers and pick up scissors will provide fine motor activities to strengthen their fingers and get ready for writing materials.

Donations to this project will help our classroom attain the sensory integration that so many of our students struggle with.

Children with autism have many sensory needs. The sensory table and materials provided with this project will be a great way for all students to explore and some will get relaxation and calming strategies.
