Our school services students from ninth-twelfth grades. My students are learning at several different performance levels within a self-contained classroom. The program allows the students to travel to different classes throughout their day. They struggle with moderate-cognitive impairments. Some students also struggle with physical, speech, vision, occupational, hearing, and behavioral impairments.
“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”-Henry James.
When we as educators, find the best materials to teach both academically, as well as teaching the students kindness and giving back, then we are doing our jobs!
How awesome would it be to have our students get moving to help severely malnourished children around the world? These UNICEF power bands track your physical fitness. Each class will compete with each other with steps, and to unlock food for children.
"Be the change you wish to see in the world"-Gandahi.
What an awesome quote from Gandahi! Our school started a campaign called, "Be The Change!" I want our students to feel empowered to feel like they are being the change, and giving back! When our students feel empowered, they will build empathy for others, and in return- confidence in themselves.
In our math concepts class, we will graph our progress. In our physical fitness class, they can track their steps. For social studies the students can study different parts of the world that they are helping to feed.
Please help us to #ChooseKind and "Be The Change!"
