Special Education transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade is such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning to imitate sounds or hold a paintbrush. Our group loves to play outside, learn new games, and boogie to a sweet tune.
In this class, we build a community around what we have in common and our shared experiences.
We are part of a larger school that celebrates inclusion. I teach in a group of one kindergartner, and two first graders with varying special needs and abilities. My classroom is about building skills to get included. The work we do in this classroom is building relationships, staying with the group, following directions, and accessing general education content in different ways. We celebrate little wins together each day.
My students have limited to no verbal communication skills. They are classified as autistic and/or intellectually disabled. I need a large capacity printer to align the core curriculum t their specific needs. It gets really expensive printing things out at Staples, and my school only has a working black and white printer, where I am only allowed a few hundred copies a month, which makes it difficult for my students to access the curriculum. I sometimes have to pick and choose what to create for each lesson, which can affect each child's ability to fully access the curriculum. Please Help!
