My Students

Put yourself in the shoes of a young middle schooler who has had difficulty in school her entire life because she was not being taught in a way that helped her be successful! This is your chance to make a difference in the lives of students who have disabilities, and help them become successful!

The students that you will be helping attend middle school in New York that has a focus on leadership.

Each of these students is special in his/her own way, but they are all energetic and excited about learning. The students you will be helping are all special needs students with varying levels of disabilities. Although each student has different needs, they all require additional support to reach their goals in all subjects. The students are in a high-needs school and require additional support and hands on activities that meets their needs. Many of these students do not respond well to the traditional methods of teaching, which is why you see many games and manipulatives that will allow me to differentiate instruction.

My Project

Students with disabilities often need additional materials and manipulatives to assist them in understanding. Unfortunately many of these students have not received the assistance they need to be successful. The population of students that you will help respond well to games and hands on activities and often need to build "real-life" skills. Using money, clocks, and number cubes will help these students practice real-life math skills within the classroom. It is also important to provide larger sized numbers and letters to assist the student in learning. Easels and markers will help the students see visual prompts during read alouds which helps retain information better! All of the resources requested will make learning more engaging and exciting for these students!

Students with disabilities are often forgot about in curriculum planning and in schools all around the country.

Teachers with these students struggle to help students with needs achieve their goals because the proper resources are not provided. Supporting this project will significantly impact my ability to effectively teach my students based on their special needs.
