My students are deaf/hard of hearing and require visuals to be successful in their academics. My goal is to have a home set up during distance learning that can be as engaging as possible. The magnetic white board will provide a great backdrop to presenting concepts and ideas during whole class and small group lessons while also providing a base for hanging charts and magnetic manipulatives. The small and large pocket charts will help to organize new vocabulary, sort characteristics of groups, and hold space for our peer "shout outs" of kindness. The multicolored base 10 blocks have an added level of visual support by reinforcing through color, in addition to shape, the different values of each piece. The read aloud books have been chosen because each character posses a trait that my students can see themselves in. In addition to being a part of the deaf/hard of hearing community, my students all come from diverse backgrounds and it is important that they identify with the characters they see and read about in books. Many deaf/hard of hearing students do not progress past a 4th grade reading level. I want to challenge this statistic by providing books that my students can't wait to engage with because they see characters just like them in the stories and adventures!
