My Students

My students are overcomers! Our school is in a low income/high poverty district. All students receive 100% free breakfast and lunch. Along with the challenges associated with poverty, my students also have exceptionalities. These exceptionalities range from developmental delays to autism. Even though tasks may be difficult, my students work hard every day to achieve their goals.

My students do not even realize how inspirational they are!

They come to school with the brightest smiles and warmest hugs every day. Coloring art work with broken crayons and not having the supplies needed to improve their fine motor skills does not dampen their spirit. My students find a way to make the best of each situation.

My Project

My students need materials to help improve their fine motor skills. They also need materials to increase their cognitive abilities. The lacing materials help students build these fine motor skills. The snapping, zipping, lacing, and tying boards help students learn to become more independent because these skills help them dress themselves. My students also need to learn letters and numbers. I've selected materials that I believe will be high interest for my students as they learn letters and numbers. We do a lot of small group centers in our classroom, and these materials will be wonderful for students to manipulate and explore during their learning.

I truly believe ALL students can learn.

As an educator, it is my responsibility to meet my students where they are and do what it takes to teach them the way THEY learn. My students love to use their hands to manipulate items in their learning.
