My Students

Communicating is key to the success of any classroom and in my class, it is increasingly difficult to find unique ways for my students to truly communicate.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences through the use of technology.

Each student in my classroom has a unique need that requires special support for communication.

My Project

I am requesting materials that will help promote visuals and student learning. I believe having a text rich environment with the many books that I am requesting, will help promote communication in my students. We have basic materials in our dramatic play area, as well as our block area. The specialized blocks will spring life into our plain old wooden blocks. The printer ink with help me give the materials that my students need to gain independence, structure and transition throughout my classroom with visual supports! This project would significantly support my students that have Autism needs!
