My Students

My students are preschoolers and first graders in a self-contained supported learning classroom. They are a very diverse group of learners with physical and cognitive disabilities that require a smaller classroom setting.

They deserve the best, and I try each day to deliver just that!

Despite any limitations they may face, my students are an enthusiastic group of children who love to try new things and get very excited when we get to introduce something new. I have a friendly, outgoing class that is eager to learn and a joy to teach!

My Project

I've chosen a variety of items to help my children as they learn different ways to communicate! My children have so much to communicate and just need a way to get it out for others to understand them. Many of my children are non-verbal and need prompts and visual supports as they learn other means of communication.

I've chosen a set of American Sign Language alphabet cards and posters to place around the room to help students (and adults) remember the signs for various daily activities.

The ABC sound book is an interactive way for students to learn letters, words, numbers, shapes, colors and animals! The print-rich classroom labels and learning magnets will provide picture representations of regularly used words and items throughout the classroom. The matching game will encourage vocabulary in students as they recognize how things work together. The social skills games and books will help my children with social problem-solving and emotion recognition and management.

These items and activities will encourage my children on their journey to communication!
