My Students

My school is in an urban area, and it is classified as a low-performing school due to attendance and low test scores. Our school is able to provide us with some items; however, resources are limited.

We are learning and growing in our early childhood classroom for students with autism.

They range in age from three to five years old. We spend our days working and playing together to increase our kindergarten readiness skills. We are working hard to increase our functional skills to interact more with our peers.

My Project

In class we have a wonderful preschool curriculum; we spend most of our day in centers. We have a small technology center, where the students are able to use games and activities to reinforce classroom skills. We have students who have been diagnosed with autism in our classroom; some of my students aren't able to master working a mouse. Therefore, they aren't able to independently work in the technology center. These tablets will allow students to use touch capabilities.

Your donation will allow us to integrate technology into our daily schedule.

The students enjoy educational sites like ABC Mouse and Starfall. These sites reinforce what we're learning in the classroom and allow students to become more proficient using technology.
