My Students

My students are funny, thoughtful, creative, intelligent, and passionate about learning and reading! Each of my students are unique with interests and passions of their own. I teach students with a wide range of abilities and reading levels. My classroom is made up of both retained 3rd graders and 4th graders.

I teach students who have so much potential but have a variety of needs.

I teach students who have unique learning styles. I teach students who are on IEP plans, 504 plans, students who go through the RTI process, ESL students, ED students, and students who need extra supports. My classroom have a behavior focus with many special needs based on positive reinforcement.

My students love learning and are eager to become better readers, writers, and mathematicians everyday! I have experienced through research and experience that sensory tools can greatly help students to keep focus, and to keep stress and anxiety down while learning.

My Project

I want to provide my students with the sensory tools that they need to succeed! My students have many different needs and learning styles. I am all about giving my students different choices and opportunities for them to succeed.

These sensory tools will promote a positive learning environment while eliminating distractions while learning!

I cannot wait to be able to provide them with comforting tools that they can use while working hard and learning every day. The tools that I have selected including the kinetic sand, sensory wiggle seat cushion, the MarvelBead water beads, stretchy strings, and especially the SpringFly sensory pack will provide the sensory input that the students need in a less distracting way. They can help improve concentration and attention to tasks by allowing the brain to filter out the extra sensory information (e.g. listening to a lesson in the classroom, paying attention to a book during guided reading lessons or whole group read-alouds) I will be able to further reach the needs of each of my students by providing them with these tools in the classroom. I work at a Title One school and do not have the resources to fund this on my own. This would be just a great start for a life-long project of mine on incorporating sensory tools into my classroom learning environment.
