Distance Learning: Summer School Learning
Help me give my students learning materials for at-home summer school and summertime learning!
Due to the nature of their disabilities and learning styles, my students pose a unique challenge for parents during this time. The hurdle we face as their educational support team and parents is to keep these young learners actively engaged in learning activities that stimulate language development, engagement, and independence. They learn best when "doing" and problem-solving. Traditional "worksheet" types of activities cannot meet their needs alone.
Because we are a Title I school, many of the children in my classroom come from households without the financial resources to supply these types of materials for their children's learning.
We are all struggling to function in this "new normal" our nation faces as we socially distance to stay healthy. Distance Learning has become part of the daily routine for teachers and students everywhere. Our state has determined that distance learning will continue throughout the rest of this school year, including the extra months for "Extended School Year" that children with special needs typically require.
Having daily access to letter, number, and shape manipulatives at home will help the young children in my classroom continue to thrive and learn during long term distance learning.
While I have been making and supplying as many hand-on learning activities as I can for my students each week, the types of items in this project are not ones I can make in my home. Please help me help my young students continue to learn and grow for the rest of this school year, and during the summer months.
