My Students

Our school is a kindergarten through eigth grade, dual-language, immersion charter school in Atlanta, Georgia. We are a multi-racial, multi-cultural, and multi-lingual community. Our kindergarten students learn math and science while fully immersed in Spanish, Mandarin or French. They learn language arts and social studies in English.

Our students are special because not only are they immersed in a new language, but they are challenged to excel and be top performers in English Language Arts and math as well.

We utilize a variety of teaching methods to make sure these students are getting everything they need at school. The parents are also integral parts of the learning process and support the work at home that their children are doing in the classroom. The students bring home books and other class materials to show and share with their parents. It is a team effort!

My Project

Our Kindergartners work hard all day long. So much focus and concentration are required of them. With so much learning and activity going on, sometimes they find themselves with a sensory overload. Their brains and bodies require time to recover and to get the sensory input they need. In our classroom we have a "chill zone" where students can go to get themselves ready for learning.

Our hard working kids need these to promote regulation, improve focus, increase participation, and therefore enable them to be ready to learn!

The sensory items for this project such as the fidgets, gel pads, tubes, and yoga items will help our students give their bodies and brains what they need to be able to fully participated in all classroom activities. They will be the perfect addition to our classroom "chill zone."
