Ms. Megan from Minneapolis MN is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an opportunity to use weaving as a way to regulate our emotions and relax our bodies.
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.
We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group and I am so lucky and thankful to have this group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each day!
My students love learning about mindfulness and strategies to use to help us regulate our emotions. Every morning we start out with a mindful activity to get our bodies and minds ready for learning. I would love for my students to explore other outlets for relaxation, one being weaving!
Each child would receive a loom and be able to use this as a tool throughout the year to relax and calm down when they are feeling those big emotions.
This hands -on activity will not only help those little minds, but those little hands and bodies, as well with fine motor skills and tactile learning. My students crave movement and since our classroom is open to other classrooms, we need to find quiet activities to get our wiggles out without causing distractions.
My first graders are learning how to self-regulate their emotions and notice when they need space from one another. Since our classroom is small and open to other classrooms, the clipboards would help give students an opportunity to independently move to a new quiet space within our room when they feel the need to.
Being self-aware of our emotions and our behavior is a very important skill to learn and will only create a more positive learning environment for all!
