My Students

"Don't give up. I believe in you all. A person's a person, no matter how small." -Dr. Seuss

We are a self-contained preschool special education class for children with severe communication delays and behavioral needs.

The classroom has four adults (1 teacher and 3 assistants) for 12 students. Our entertaining kiddos are ages 3-5. The students work best when provided with tailored learning opportunities that offer multiple means of engagement to target individual goals. For example, this could mean a child "says hi" by pushing a button on a voice output device, or uses adaptive scissors as they begin to learn to cut. The students work tirelessly every day to learn skills that most people take for granted (such as sitting, throwing trash away, hand washing, and so on...).

My Project

Having a large designated space for visuals is crucial in the special education classroom, especially for preschoolers. Circle time is a wonderful opportunity to practice taking turns and for the students to showcase their knowledge and skills. This easel will provide a focal point for the children's attention. It will also be a great tool for displaying information and capturing what students know. With this easel, we will be able to use magnetic letters to practice making words and learning the alphabet. They can enjoy a read-aloud from a big book. They will also be able to see the teacher write in shared writings and group brainstorming activities. With the dry erase board, students can practice their handwriting as well.

With the use of an easel, students will be able to participate in ways that target their individual needs.

For example, they can work on learning the alphabet with magnetic letters, counting, or practice handwriting by drawing lines and circles. Acquiring these skills help to better prepare them for kindergarten and for life.
