My Students

My students are unique with various abilities, mostly on the Autism Spectrum. Our 13 boys and 2 girls in this SPED class are below grade level academically. We are always looking for the best teaching tools to improve our academic skills! In fact, we just found out that our students, have made 3-Star Typical or Above Typical progress in reading fluency! We were the only classroom in the school where EVERY student who was tested had made these significant gains in reading! I really want to give them a special reward in the class by giving them an innovative writing tool to continue their progress! Our goal is to get my kiddos up to grade level!

One of our most difficult subject areas is spelling and writing.

Since we have so many levels of learners we want to find a fun, unique way to get our students to enjoy spelling. Blackboard Boogie Boards are a new way to practice spelling and can even be used to write messages to friends in this combined 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade Accommodated Core Cluster Class. This learning tool will be an incentive to write more!

My Project

Blackboards by Boogie Board is amazingly fun and an alternative way to write and spell. Students can write their tricky words they need to practice spelling or write secret messages to friends or teachers. We can declare a "No Talking Time!" and students and teachers can write messages to each other to communicate! Presently, I have two of these in our class, but we need more as the students LOVE them but are not so great at sharing!

Students would use these Blackboards daily to practice spelling for their Lexia iPad program!

First, the Lexia program teaches high frequency words or spelling patterns. This is when students would use their Blackboard to practice their spelling words! This makes the spelling FUN!
