"It takes a big heart to shape young minds". I remember seeing this quote for the first time and understanding exactly what it meant. I knew that teaching was where my heart was and all I wanted was to give the students the best possible chance to be successful.
Many of my student's are having their first school experience when they come into my classroom!
I teach a Pre-K self-contained 3 and 4 year old classroom and all of my students have their own unique personalities; that you will fall in love with. My classroom is full of varying disabilities that require individualized goals and instruction.
My classroom is full of student's with special needs who are full of energy and eager to learn. Sometimes my student's can have a difficult time expressing themselves; both verbally and non-verbally. I want my student's to have a positive school experience so that they feel comfortable in my classroom. Giving the student's sensory material will help them be able to regulate themselves throughout the school day.
The student's in my classroom thrive off of sensory input!
Having these materials in the classroom will give them the support they need to reach their learning goals. Without meeting certain sensory needs it can be very difficult for the student's to focus on learning. The Silly Shapes Sensory Mats and Tactile Pillows will always be available to the students to use when they need that sensory input to balance them out! The Sensory Marble Mazes and Jumbo Tactile are activities that the students can enjoy and learn from at the same time. The Foam Sensory Paint will give them sensory experience while also allowing them to be creative.
