First Grade classes participated in "Sensory Story Time" from the Peoria Public Library. This program was created for students with sensory issues and special needs, but all students benefit and enjoy the monthly presentations. Librarian Katy Bauml exposes students to books and reading while encouraging participation through poems, finger plays and songs. Students have the option to hold a variety of items during the program including fiber noodles, egg shakers, scarves and rhythm sticks to fidget or fiddle
The 94 kindergarten students at Thomas Jefferson listened attentively as fourth graders talked about what their life is like living with a disability. This activity promoted sensitivity for all people's differences and taught our Kindergartners that while everyone is different, we all have similarities and special things about us!
