My Project

Our class is majority African American and some with learning disabilities. However, in learning, students need to understand and comprehend all subjects. All children do not learn the same. Some have learning and academic needs that are different from their other classmates, so this project is to help those students who have disabilities with more support to learn a new skill.

Children learn best through sight and hearing.

The speech therapy mirrors my sounds and will help them to pronounce their words better. The flashcards are used to help students with disabilities clearly see the font without distractions from other written words. The word sets and dominoes helps students with learning abilities to build phonemic awareness. The electronic speak and spell electronic game will help students to say and spell the words easily.

Also, children love to see themselves in books. These books represent a variety of familiar disabilities, and it shows students that even with a disability your opportunities are limitless.

The folders will help to keep their materials organized, so there will be minimal items to distract from their attention span. Plus, the bags are used to store resources, so their items can be easily accessible for them.
