3 Easy Steps to creating a Sensory Friendly Classroom

Teachers

  1. Would you like to create a sensory friendly classroom environment, easily and affordably?
  2. Would you like to stop disruptive beahviour in the classroom, allowing you to focus on being a teacher? 
  3. Would you like your classroom to be engaged and focused on the task at hand. 

Do you know that with a few simple tips and strategies you can encourage self-regulation in the classroom to help manage behavioural and emotional break downs throughout the day. 

Why Self Regulation in the Classroom is important?

Managing a classroom can be difficult when you have multiple kids you are responsible for. When you have kids who are acting out and being disruptive, this can limit your ability to teach to all of the kids in the classroom. Teaching self-regulation skills to every kid in the classroom can be helpful for everyone, but especially for children who have more difficulty in this area.

Also, think about how your classroom environment is set up. Do you have enough area in the room to allow for movement breaks or a corner in the room that children can go to if they need a break? Do you have a positive environment in your classroom for the students? What do you have on the walls of the classroom?

I love this article, as it highlights the importance of creating sensory friendly spaces within the classroom, and why it is so important. 

Special Needs Australia actively promote creating sensory friendly environments, as we know the positive benefits and outcomes for the teacher and students.

Busy teachers are trying to manage behaviour in the classroom, which takes away from what you do best, being a teacher. Our goal is to make it very easy and simple for you to start implementing Sensory Friendly strategies, straight away.

We also know that some teachers are limited by budget, that's why we create School Packs, allowing you to kit out a school or classroom on a budget.

Sensory Classroom Detox, have you considered the benefits of detoxing your classroom? 

If you’re a primary or early childhood teacher at a busy school, you know what it’s like to struggle with behaviour issues in the classroom.

Even if only one child is disruptive it can affect everyone:

  • Your students have trouble focusing, so helping them learn feels like a constant battle
  • They find it difficult to calm down after break times, so you lose a lot of time getting the room back under control
  • Even the slightest change in routine can set off a chain reaction of emotional meltdowns, poor choices or poor behaviour.

You don’t have to continue this way

Research shows that making small but specific changes to the classroom environment can advance learning up to nine months (Clever Classrooms research).

This mean that your students will

  • be calmer and more settled in class
  • have more positive behaviour
  • concentrate and learn better.

Your days and weeks of teaching can have more flow.
