My Students

I have a very diverse group of students who all come together in the classroom and want to learn and play. My students are between the ages of 3 and 5 years old and in a Special Education classroom.

My students are so excited to enter the classroom each day and see what activities we have out and I would love for us to have accessible materials for the wide range of abilities.

We range from low functioning to very high functioning. We range from typically developing to identified students. My classroom reaches a very wide variety of students, but they all love to play!

My Project

My students need cause and effect toys to participate with items in a meaningful way. Many of the students are experiencing motor deficits or other impairments that make everyday items difficult to access. We would like for all students to have meaningful experiences in our classroom and sensory materials can cause great joy and learning!

A sensory wall would be eye level for a student with visual impairments, and also allow for easy participation with many different kinds of items.

This sensory wall will be a wood pegboard attached to a wall. The items I have requested: musical instruments, metal locks, a car ramp, tactile items, and more. These items will be attached to the pegboard in different ways, so the students can interact with them but they cannot take them off the wall. This helps with the safety of the children and the items. All of the items include sensory aspects, whether it be noise, lights, etc. Sensory aspects are important for students with vision or hearing loss. This wall will also be intriguing and get students interested in interacting with objects. I would love to make a wall that stays in the early childhood special education classroom for students to engage in each day.
