Sensory Center and Relaxation Station
My classroom has various sensory activities for students. They can choose from the Sensory Center, which has gross motor activities or they can go to the Relaxation Station which includes fine motor activities. Providing this sensory input is important for student success. In May 2011, I won a $1000 grant from The Junior League of Austin for my project titled, "Success Through Sensory Integration". This generous grant helped to buy many new materials for my classroom. My students are enjoying all of our new things!
