    My Students

    My English class contains 24 amazing students that come from varied ability backgrounds. Numerous students display overactive and anxious behaviours. For many students, learning in the vibrant environment offered by 24 students can be too stimulating, even overwhelming. However, given a variety of aids, from sensory items to safe spaces, these children can adapt and learn to cope, participating actively in the bustling environment of an intermediate classroom. They can learn to self-regulate.

    How will this project impact them?

    My goal with this proposal is to gather sensory aids to help those children that need assistance in monitoring their anxiety levels, the noise levels around them, and the space they work in. For many children working in a busy classroom is not possible. Yet, if they can block out noise, they can calm themselves. If they can put up a temporary wall on their desk, they can create private space free of visual distraction. Some students must "fidget" in order to focus, thus creating kits of fidget tools will help students ready themselves to be receptive to those around them. For some, to verbally express their feelings is very challenging, so providing them tools that give colour signals for moods (identifying their Zone of Regulation), allows those around them to adapt. All of these tools that we can offer children help them self-regulate according to their needs, within the classroom.
