The Power of Touch: Sensory Needs

Help me give my students a spot where they can take care of their sensory needs.

My Students

The students at my school are resilient. They persevere through many experiences as children with military parents. Many of them have already attended multiple elementary schools in multiple states or countries. They are supportive peers and classmates.

These children go through a lot of daily challenges in their lives as military children.

They need an atmosphere that focuses on the well-being of the whole child. They need a place where adults can teach them self-regulation strategies that they can travel the world with.

My Project

The materials requested in this project will be used in an intervention room to help students who need a calm down spot or a spot to focus on their sensory needs. It's becoming well known that educators need to focus on the whole child and their sensory needs are not given enough support.

This room will allow me to teach students self-regulation strategies of requesting a break in a positive setting where they will get choice in activities to help settle their minds and bodies to refocus them for classroom learning.

The materials selected provide a variety of strategies to target fine

and gross motor skills with an emphasis on mindfulness.
