My students need their visuals to be in color. Our school only provides printers with black and white ink. Having a colored printer in our classroom, will allow us to make visuals to help them succeed.
As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I teach 3-5 year old students with disabilities, specifically autism. They enjoy coming to school and are eager to learn, but rely strongly on visuals.. My students need very specific supplies and activities; more than what the district is able to provide. Many books in my classroom are handmade or modified with visuals to help them succeed with the curriculum. I am hoping by putting together this project, that I am able to provide them with the colored visuals, books, and activities that they need to be successful.
Visuals, Visuals, Visuals! So important to have in our classroom. Being able to provide the students with colored visuals will help them to succeed with the curriculum. Our school only has printers with black and white ink, which are not beneficial for my learners.
My learners rely on visuals as their mode of speech.
We create books filled with icons so that the students can communicate with us in a way that makes it possible to do so.
Many books that we read, are modified or created by myself to include colorful pictures and velcro. This allows for students to physically engage in the story. They often times are given picture icons to match within the story.
