Monday Made It - Glitter Calming Jar

So, I'm very much aware that I haven't posted in forever, but that doesn't mean I haven't been blog stalking. :) I'm absolutely loving summer vacation... I have 2 curriculum meetings this week for a couple of hours.. And after that I'm done with school until early August when i go back early to set up my classroom.

In my blog stalking, I saw that Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics is having a linky party.

Next year, I will have two students with autism... First time for me. I want to have a lot of sensory resources for my kiddos that they can use to help them feel more comfortable in uncomfortable situations. So I made this Glitter Calming Jar.

The photo really doesn't do it justice.. But I can't figure out how to upload a video from my iPad... C'est la vie.

  1. Lauren,
    I absolutely love this....I had a student with autism and think I am getting another this year BUT I also had a student with severe EBD and wonder if this would have been beneficial to him (or would he have thrown it) Hmmm...something for me to think about. I do have to find something plastic though for sure:) Thanks for linking up:)

    1. I thought about the glass issue too, but I haven't found a clear enough plastic to use... I'm on the hunt though.. I'm going to make another one... Using just fine glitter.. I'm not 100% satisfied yet.. But they're so easy to make that I don't mind making a few more until I get it the way I like it.

  3. I have a student who I'm looping with who has screaming fits a lot. They're always attention-seeking behaviors, he is a perfectly healthy and normal child, but this might give me a break from having to drag him out of the corner or the coatroom next year. :) Thanks for sharing!

  4. I just found your blog Lauren and I'm your newest follower. I love this idea. Like Jill said, I have a student who has major tantrums in my classroom. The only thing he is diagnosed with is ADHD and ODD, but this might be useful. Thanks for sharing!
