My Students

I will be teaching in a brand new Intensive Learning Support class for 5 to 8-year-old students. My students have a variety of disabilities but they are all full of enthusiasm and excitement for learning! My students struggle with pro-social skills and executive functioning. These are critical skills to learn in order to be a successful student.

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

Bringing the real world into their classroom will allow us to harness that enthusiasm and curiosity for learning.

My Project

Every Friday is Fun Friday in our classroom. Through the use of weekly cooking activities, students will learn and practice positive social skills. Students will practice taking turns, cooperating, reading directions, asking for help and even learning patience.

Bringing cooking into the classroom will help to bring real-world skills to my students!

We may use the crock pot to create Stone Soup or make applesauce to celebrate Johnny Appleseed Day. The electric skillet will be used to make green eggs and ham to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. These are just a few of the fun cooking lessons I would like to try with my awesome students.

They will have to work with one another to get the project completed. Cooking and completing a project brings an immediate reward for positive skills!
