I have 8 students in my classroom and they are in an autism classroom. My students come from low income families. They require special instruction in all academic areas and in social interaction with peers. Most of my students have difficulty with pencil to paper tasks and need an iPad to use math and reading apps for learning.
My students like to do art projects that are adapted to their learning and creating style.
In doing their art projects they need art materials to create their projects.
Having the art supplies for my students to be creative will give them the opportunity to explore their creative side. Having the art supplies in the classroom will help my students in others ways just beside the creating part. They need to follow 1-6 step directions in the adaptive art lesson. The students will use the art material to create seasonal, curriculum art projects.
Doing adaptive art in the classroom has helped my students with following directions and being creative.
When we do adaptive art in the classroom my students are excited for the project they are creating. Then they are excited to see their project hanging in the hallway.
