My Students

How do I consolidate the boundless potential of the young minds which surround me, inspire me, teach me, challenge me, and simply make me smile, into "2-3 paragraphs"?

We look beyond the barriers surrounding us, and learn by seizing experiences through the pages of books.

My students come to me to learn in a small group setting due to a variety of learning disabilities and subsequent accommodations to address the impact of those learning disabilities in grade level curriculum. That is the automated, calculated answer. But my students are so much more.

My Project

My students receive accommodations to address the impact of their individual learning deficits. They are multi-sensory learners and without some kind of visual representation of the work put in front of them, it becomes increasingly more difficult to maintain attention spans and their focus. The Classroom Document Camera can easily meet this need.

Students with special needs have the ability to learn and as their teacher, I want to provide every opportunity I can to help them shatter any other opinion.

Reading remains the most challenging and intimidating areas for my special needs students. While the document camera would provide the means to accommodate my students, I want to also plant the seeds of inspiration and discovery within them. We have a class library, which they run on their own. Since opening the library, AR tests and reading scores have increased. However, reading in our library takes place on the linoleum floor. The Calming Colors® Big Beanbag Seats and cushions would provide flexible seating as well as motivation for students to read in our classroom library. Please help us continue this trend with seating for our classroom library!
