A Place of Their Own

Help me give my students a place to call their own, a cubby unit . A place where they can store their belongings, learn organization skills and even help to keep germs from spreading among others.

My Students

Hello, my name is Miss Shelley. I am an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher in the Peninsula School District. My students are 3, 4 and 5 year olds who qualify for special education services in one or more areas of their development. Each student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that helps set a learning focus.

I am happy to say that these students, some that will be with me for up to 3 years, absolutely love preschool, their teachers and peers and all of our daily routines and activities.

I am excited to welcome them all back into the classroom on September 21st!

My Project

Upon entering the classroom, my preschool students with various special needs, will feel a sense of importance and belonging, having their own space for their coat and pack to hang up on as well as a cubby to place their completed projects in.

This cubby unit will help my students develop their self-help skills as they care for their own items as well a sense of responsibility as they take care of their daily projects.

As a teacher, I will be able to monitor my students following directions, using their motor skills to hang their items and and how they interact and socialize with their peers as they enter this area.

These self-help skills will be practiced everyday at preschool and will carry over at home as they begin to care for their own belongings and enjoy their independence and abilities to do things on their own.
