My class consists of 6 amazing students. My students have autism and are using Google Classroom and ClassDojo to complete work assignments. Due to their diagnosis, they struggle with sudden changes. At this time, they are missing their school routine and the familiar faces that they know and love. Many of my students lack the supplies and tools needed to complete many hands-on activities at home.
Distance learning can be hard for many students, especially those with autism. Many hands-on resources are not available to my students in their home environment. I would like to help make their transition easier and less stressful by providing some of these resources to them. Right now, my students are still getting used to the transition out of the classroom.
Therefore, I would like to bring items into their homes to make this change easier for them.
I have chosen many hands-on activities that they will enjoy, while still helping with their educational journey at home. Some of these items include LEGO kits, butterfly gardens, and engaging fine motor activities. These items will allow my students to receive hands-on learning that they can not receive at home by means of a computer screen or tablet. My students do not have access to this type of learning in their homes. With these items, they will be able to practice these skills interactively each day.
