My Students

My classroom is a self-contained special education classroom for preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We adapt the preschool curriculum to meet the diverse needs of the students and to increase opportunities to work on social, communication, and academic skills. It is my goal to find materials and activities to help motivate and engage my students to participate in classroom activities and to increase interactions with each other.

Preschoolers love to come to school to play, learn, and meet new friends, but some kids have barriers that make it hard to enjoy and participate in these activities without support.

The students in this classroom have high level needs, and they are not yet able to participate in a preschool classroom with a larger group of students. They need a structured environment with a small number of students and many direct teaching opportunities.

The school is located in an urban setting and serves many children who qualify for free or reduced rate lunch. The district has limited funding and early childhood programs rarely receive the materials they need. Many times we need to create or purchase materials on our own in order to have the materials we need.

My Project

Preschoolers love to create using a variety of materials and our classroom goes through a lot of art materials throughout the year. This project would provide a variety of fun, engaging, and creative materials for my students to use during art activities and to help increase motivation and engagement in classroom activities.

The students in my classroom love exploring and creating during art activities and need a variety of materials in order to use in their projects.

Through this project, I will be able to restock our art supplies and provide a wide array of collage materials, such as popsicle sticks, fabric squares, glue, feathers, buttons, tissue paper, jewels, macaroni, glitter glue, and flowers in order to extend their creativity and engagement in classroom activities. It would provide a variety of different paints such as watercolors, glitter paint, stamp pads, and dot paints.
