My Students

How cool was it when you were in first grade to sit at the tape player and listen to a story. Well now that tape player has changed and is much more advance. Today, First graders can put on headphones and listen to a story on a tablet. We also need our old headphones replaced.

Our school is now a Pre-Kindergarten to 3rd grade building.

The students in my classroom are in grades Kindergarten to Third. They are all on the Autism Spectrum and a wide range academically. All students are mainstreamed for a portion of the day. My students are the most interesting and loving kids you will find.

My Project

When I was little I loved listening to books on tape, in fact I think there is nothing better than listening to someone read. With new technology such as the Nook Tablet, my students can not only hear but visually follow along with the words on the screen, which makes it even more attention grabbing. We also have some CD players and iPods at a listening center that have headphones that need to be replaced. Students who are engaged in listening activities will improve their comprehension. It also allows them to hear the stories read by someone other than a teacher or parent.

Children with Autism are very motivated by computers and electronic devices, having a tablet will motivate the students to complete work in the classroom and provide them with an highly engaging activity that is quiet(thus the headphones).
