My Students

I teach students who range in age from pre-Kindergarten to 5th grade who have difficulty with learning, controlling their behavior, or have physical disabilities. They all come into my classroom at various times throughout the day in order to get more targeted instruction in their area of need.

Each of my students are unique in their abilities and interests, but all of them LOVE to move!

Many of my students have sensory issues that hinder their ability to stay focused and learn to the best of their ability.

My Project

Most of my students have a difficult time sitting still and quiet all school-day long and even though they get to have recess daily, it just sometimes is not enough movement for them. The decals will be placed on the carpet mat which will allow the sensory path to be portable so it can be used in my classroom, another classroom, or the hallway, depending on the needs of the student using it and the needs of any other students in my classroom.

The sensory path will provide a way for my students to be able to get their movement needs met and be ready to focus on their learning needs.

I have seen how movement, whether it be "brain breaks" in the general education classroom or running a few laps in an unoccupied hallway has helped my students be able to focus. This investment will help me be able to provide for their needs in a more planned, concise way.
