My Students

My students are children with special needs. They have a variety of learning disabilities.

The school I work in is a Title I school, which means the students come from low income families.

This past year I noticed that students bring a lot of their home life problems into the classroom. A fun and exciting school day can help take away from any home stress they are experiencing. Despite their struggles, I will help my students work to the best of their abilities.

My Project

In order to engage my students every day we need supplies! My students are in constant need of pencils. A pencil sharpener will also help my students be prepared and ready to write. We use tape for different classroom projects throughout the year. For example we make timelines, diorama, etc. I also can benefit from tape and staples when making centers for reading, writing, and, math. Packaging tape helps me hang charts in my classroom. Copy paper is a must to help make daily, differentinaed assignments for my students. My students also use copy paper when completing projects in my class.
