I teach in Savannah, Georgia at a public school. The school is a Choice School that includes two classrooms of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Students are provided opportunities to participate in project-based learning throughout the school campus.
STEM learning is engaging, interactive, and collaborative.
Students with ASD often need to practice collaborative skills as well as how to navigate in a non-traditional learning environment that includes manipulative materials, movement, and exploration. My students are successful when given the tools, along with the practice of proper use and expectations.
My students are active learners and I enjoy the challenge to keep them engaged! My students are provided opportunities on and off campus to practice (generalize) skills learned in our classroom.
Students will each be given their own novel to follow along during Read Aloud Time. Students have the opportunity to choral read, independently read, practice reading, and share their reading skills with the class or teacher. With this engaging novel, students will draw comparisons to the movie, engage in cooking, and STEAM activities. We will work on character traits and timelines through the novel as well as the adapted novel we will get. All students will have access to a grade-level book through the adapted novel as well as the original novel to experience purposeful and age-appropriate materials.
