teacher comments
TEACHER COMMENTS
  • Preschool 1 Scores 23 pre /24 post

“Joan helped me define an area that I will set up for a sensory center… just time, time, time to get out there and search for appropriate materials to include. I wonder if an area with head phones for listening to quiet music is a good place to start.”

  • Preschool 3 Scores 16 pre/28 post

“ I am excited about a sensory center in my classroom. What should a sensory center “look like”? “what materials? ” (pre comments)

“The sensory center in my classroom has been helpful. Students are able to access sensory materials with adult support. Thank you Joan and Alicia” (post comments)

teacher comments cont
TEACHER COMMENTS CONT.
  • Preschool 4 Scores 19 pre/28 post

“ Several children use the sensory area spontaneously. At times, children are helped to recognize how they feel and told to go to the area. The head phones are very popular as are the items children can squeeze. A parent (on entry) took her son to the area since he was having difficulty transitioning.” (post comments)

Request for Assistance (post) “I will need help to keep it “ present & visible” through conversation and modeling”

  • Preschool 5 Scores 22 pre/27 post

“All children & adults, too!, benefit from an increased awareness of how our bodies feel and ways to increase alertness or decrease stressors as needed. Having a specific place to go to get your body just right would be very beneficial” (pre comments)

Request for Assistance (pre) “I would like more on specific ways to make various sensory strategies/activities a naturally occurring part of our classroom curriculum. It should be a consideration for curriculum planning

(i.e. How is this activity meeting the sensory needs of the class?)”

“We have a sensory center up & running that kids can access independently or with direction. They are becoming more aware of how their bodies feel and respond to strategies to increase alertness or decrease activity level.” (post comments)

Request for Assistance (post) “Continued support & suggestions for sensory ideas especially being mindful of how to incorporate sensory activities naturally into our curriculum.”

effectiveness goals for the future
EFFECTIVENESS????GOALS FOR THE FUTURE

We were effective in all of the classrooms in the following ways:

  • We were able to raise staff awareness and provide support in implementation of sensory strategies in all of the classrooms
  • Staff were validated and recognized for their existing use of sensory strategies
  • Staff understanding of what Sensory Processing is and the use of sensory strategies has increased
  • In 3 /4 classrooms sensory centers/areas were developed
  • In the 4th classroom, the teacher is intending to still put a sensory center in place

Goals for the future include:

  • Continue to support and validate use of sensory strategies/centers throughout the preschool program to meet children’s needs
  • Expand knowledge to families
  • Broaden awareness within our district by teaming up with Marjory and Stephanie
