I teach special needs four-year-old students in a district-based, Title I school. My students have a wide variety of needs, such as communication, social-emotional, fine and gross motor, cognitive, and behavioral. I also serve children with autism. The majority of my students come from a low-economical background. Coming to school on a regular basis is an escape where the children can play and grow while learning, strengthening their social skills, self-help skills, as well as follow a daily schedule and routine.
Some of our non-verbal students use communication books to make requests or comments. The Velcro dots will be used throughout the classroom to better utilize this communication. There will be pictures of classroom toys and activities adhered to posters on the wall with Velcro. The students will take the picture of the item that they want and give it to a peer or staff member to request the item.
Our students love activities that involve numbers and the alphabet.
The ice cream activity, as well as the alphabet mystery game, will be used during our learning activity time to help strengthen these skills. We have also added some items to help enhance our art shelf to help promote processed art. Our students also enjoy using their creativity while building with Legos. We have added a variety of Lego people figures to our project, as well as building plates for the students to build their own individual creations.
