My classroom is especially designed for students with Special Needs. Every student is different and requires individualized plans and accommodations to reach the highest level of success. My students rely heavily on visual aids to complete tasks throughout the school day.
My students are five- and six-year-old students who are diagnosed with special needs, they enjoy learning and exploring.
They attend an offsite school that receives very little to no supplies. They deserve the appropriate tools needed to help facilitate learning, despite their attending school in a high-poverty, high-crime neighborhood. Students with Autism often become discouraged when facing academic and physical barriers. In my classroom, I like to promote an "I can" environment, instead of an "I can't."
By funding this project which consist of a Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine and accessories, my students will be able to express themselves through printed words. Students using their creativity will design and creative posters, books, and banners which shows their newfound ability to read. Students will appreciate the act of expressing themselves with printed words as they use their new classroom items to display their reading skills. Additionally, students will hone their reading skills as they design project-based units for the science/art fair. Donations to this project will improve my classroom because it will engage my students learners through connecting reading to literacy.
By using the Circuit Explore Air 2 Machine and accessories, my students will improve their reading skills while connecting with STEAM study!
Students will explore how to incorporate technology into STEAM and project-based learning. My goal is to have my students to become better readers through integrating technology to reading. My students will also be more independent in reading!
