My Students

My students are special because they are children and children are a miracle and a blessing to teach, learn from, and watch them grow into excited and participating life-long learners. My classroom has a variety of students, though most of the students are from a low-economic area.

The students have a variety of needs including, but not limited to, limited to no exposure to peers, academics, communication, social or motor concepts.

Many of the children have limited to no language and are working on basic and appropriate communication. The children also have limited social-emotional or social-behavior skills that are developmental below their age range and they are being introduced to appropriate social interactions as well as social communicational skills for themselves, to engage with peers, and to engage with adults.

My classroom consists of children with specialized needs (Autism, learning, physical, and motor disabilities [fine and gross], developmental delays, and communication disabilities). The classroom also contains children with typical developmental progress who help provide modeling for the students with delays. The combined format also provides each student the opportunity to connect, make friendships, and learn about the diversity around them and how to empathize with each other.

My Project

The supplies requested will impact my students by providing supplies that the students can engage with in both the classroom setting and to check-out to play with at home to encourage family engagement.

My students have a variety of needs and these supplies will help promote engagement in a variety of cross-curricular activities as well as helping to promote and strengthen their developmental skills.

These items: Science Discover Kits, Family Language Packs, capital letter stamps, and diversity figures are activities that will help impact my students language, science, social, communication, motor skills, as well as building an understanding of the differences around them.

The diversity figures will help the students engage in the social interaction as they play with the figures, teaching empathy, friendships, motor skills in handling the figures, and communication-language development. Family packs can be used in the classroom during family events, and checked out to go home. These kits can help create special times to support social, communication/ language, and motor skills as they explore the kits. The science kit will help encourage and grow their curiosity, helping them learn how to ask questions, and explore the world around them. As the students are asking questions they are potentially expanding their vocabulary, social interactions, and communication skills. The items in the science kits will help the students develop and practice their fine motor skills. The stamps will help with letter engagement, precision motor skills, while engaging in literacy and art.
