Goal

Our ultimate goal is to secure funding for a sensory path to be utilized by students K-5. When a student is having behavioral problems that impede their learning, the sensory path can be used to expend excess energy and refocus the student allowing them to get back on task.  

 

What will be done with my students

A sensory path is a series of guided movements for kids to follow, shown by markings on the ground or walls. As students follow the path and completes the movements, they work off excess energy and develop their gross motor skills. Sensory paths are especially useful for students with special needs, but can be beneficial for all. Currently, when we have a student who is having emotional outbursts (related to a disability or not) we allow them to use a cool down box (filled with fidgets). This system can be beneficial at times, but students often need to physically express their energy to regain focus and a sensory path would allow them to do this in a safe, productive manner. 

 

Benefits to my students

Creating a sensory path will give students a physical space to unwind and refocus. High-intensity activities like a sensory pathway will get the blood pumping, helping children to sit still and focus for longer periods of time in the classroom. It will also help with their emotional regulation thereby increasing attention and concentration. When a student has control of their emotions and behavior, they can access their education more readily. A sensory path is essential for students with special needs, but can also benefit the general student population as well. 

 

Describe the Students

Ponce De Leon Elementary School is a Title one, 100% free and reduced lunch school. We have a high ESE population with a lot of student behavior issues and no behavior specialist. We also have two access point units who service students with special needs.
