My Students

I have a severe and profound special education classroom. My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Our community is a multicultural, poverty-stricken area. Many of the students in our district face adult problems every day.

My students also have a multitude of disabilities, from physical to mental; however, that does not slow them down.

Special education preschool is special. I build the foundation in these students' education. My students teach me so much about enjoying life and laughing. We fill our room with love and learning every day.

My Project

My students are at the very beginning of exploring and understanding their environment. Cause and effect toys helps the child to develop early communication and cognition skills, which are necessary to understand the cause and effect relationship. Items such as the interactive poster, mushrooms and drums encourage play by making noise or movement when an action is taken.

Fine motor matters.

With every age and stage children learn and master new motor skills. Fine motor skills involve small muscle planning within the hand and require eye coordination in order to manipulate objects. These skills are used every day to live and play. My students require fine motor toys that are easy to grasp, easy to see and simple to use. These skills will eventually build into everyday life skills.
