My Project

These items will help keep my students organized and learning as the year goes on. Being able to take a sensory break as needed is vital for these very vulnerable learners. I have always been a huge proponent of play-based learning for all ages and abilities of students and the items in this project will help me make those lessons a possibility.

Lesson materials students can work with individually, to reinforce newly learned standards help ensure the learning becomes permanent and builds confidence in the learner.

Any help is appreciated.
