My Students

My school is a small but strong school nestled in Limestone County. Most of our students are from low-income households. Over half of our school is on free or reduced lunch. We may be a small school but we are a very unique and great school!

My students are my life, they brighten my day every time they walk through the school doors.

They are so full of life and love adventures. They love coming to school every day, learning, and playing with their friends. My K-2 classroom is very unique! I teach in a self-contained Autism and Developmentally Delayed Classroom.

All of my students learn differently and some have a more difficult time learning new concepts. By being able to provide new resources for my students, I will be able keep my students engaged and learning new concepts!

My Project

These sensory items will enhance the sensory experience my students will receive. In my Autism classroom sensory is a must, with these items I will make sensory bins to create sensory processing activities. Sensory processing affects most all individuals with Autism.

Research indicates that through the use of sensory activities, significant improvement is made in a child's ability to learn.

Sensory processing disorder has a big impact on everyday learning in a child with Autisms life. This is why I am asking for your help buying the supplies I need for my students to be successful. Thank you so much for your support.
