LVE Sensory Room Project

The Description

With these funds we will be able to provide sensory regulation to the students at Lakeview Elementary in the Wentzville School District located in Wentzville, Missouri. Our students are unique and learn in a variety of ways. They learn best when their bodies are safe, calm, and regulated. Studies have shown that when the students are provided with the opportunity to utilize appropriate sensory input their minds and bodies are better able to learn and focus throughout their school day. The use of sensory materials such as weighted balls, crash mats, yoga balls, trampolines, etc. will provide a variety of opportunities to meet the individual sensory needs of our amazing kids. 

 

The above video was our inspiration for creating a sensory room for our students. Three months ago Vicki and I found this video and were inspired at the possibilities for our students. We knew this would be an endeavor and quickly enlisted the help of our principal. We have his support and the support of our fellow teachers. We can't wait to see what opportunities this provides our students. Please help us create our dream room! 

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal we will work to purchase the core materials needed to best service our kids' sensory needs.

Crash Mat is Here

August 20, 2017

Hey guys!! Vicki and I were very excited to find out our crash mat arrived about 2 hours before Meet the Teacher Night last week. It took no time for us to rip open the box and begin filling it!! We're still waiting for more things to come, but we're off to a great start!!

We Made Our Goal!!!

August 10, 2017

So, it's a little late...but we MADE OUR GOAL!!! Vicki and I want to thank everyone who donated. From the bottom of our hearts, we are truly touched by your generosity. A few weeks after the Wentzville Firefighters Community Outreach funded the rest of our project, we were able to meet with them and personally thank them for their donation. 

As the school year approaches, Vicki and I are anxiously awaiting incoming supplies and working on preparing the room for our kiddos. 

Again, thank you. Words cannot begin to describe how incredibly blessed we feel.

This school is so very special and is filled with the most compassionate teachers I know. It's amazing, but not surprising that the funds were raised so quickly. Thank you to all that made this possible.

About the Creator

Hi all! I'm Brooke and this is my fellow teacher, Vicki. We're elementary special education teachers. We both have kids with varying levels of ability but both have kids with high sensory needs. We're creating this page to enlist your help in purchasing all kinds of sensory items that will help our kids be successful throughout the school day. From yoga balls to calm down timers to a sensory table. All these things will aide in our students being able to regulate their bodies and emotions. So, off we go! Thank you so much for your support!
