The goal for my project is to create a simple sensory walk that can be placed in each hallway. This will allow students that need a way to get out a little extra energy, or students that have sensory disorders, to have a quick way to do that.

Goal

The goal for my project is to create a simple sensory walk that can be placed in each hallway. This will allow students that need a way to get out a little extra energy, or students that have sensory disorders, to have a quick way to do that. 

 

What will be done with my students

The students will be trained to go through the sensory walk. Each section will require a different action (walk on tip-toes, balance beam, hop like a frog, side step, etc.). The ultimate goal is one in each hallway, so all students can benefit from it. Once created, the sensory walk will be available to all students until we must replace it. With the Cricut that is being purchased, we will easily be able to replace any parts that might need replaced at any time. I hope to use this for many years. 

 

Benefits to my students

We currently have a sensory room where students can get breaks. There is only one of these rooms currently, and it is located away from the lower grades. These sensory walks will allow us to have a sensory break more readily available. The biggest use for this will be the teachers for students with special needs, although all teachers and students will have access to this resource. 

 

Budget Narrative

The flooring will be used to attach everything to. We are unable to put things directly on the floor due to having carpet.

I will use the Cricut to cut out the designs shown.

The vinyl is for the actual designs.
