My Students

I am an intervention specialist in an inclusion classroom. My students are identified with a range of disabilities including autism, specific learning disabilities, ADHD, emotional disorders, and other health impairments. We also have an English Language Learner and several at-risk students. Additionally, we have typical and several advanced learners.

While most of the students come from economically disadvantaged homes, they are eager learners.

Many of our students cannot afford basic school supplies. Sixty-eight percent of our school is on free and reduced-price lunch.

My Project

These materials will help my students have hands-on learning in the area of mathematics. I’ve included large visual aids like the magnetic graphing board for student reference and interaction. My students need calculators with large buttons and supplies like the wipe-off mats that allow them to have of plenty practice.

My students need more hands-on experiences with place value concepts.

I’ve included materials like the place value sorting tray that helps students visualize the numbers and promotes strong number sense for regrouping. These materials can be placed in mathematics centers once students have acquired the skills. In this way, they can continue practicing the skills in the centers.
