The children in my classroom range in age from 3 to 5 years old. Each child has some type of disability in the area or areas of communication, cognitive, social/behavioral, and/or physical development. As a part of a very large urban school district, children come from very diverse family situations. Diversity meaning new to the country, English as a second language, two-parent families, one parent families, children in foster care, families that are homeless, and sometimes a mixture of the above. These diverse characteristics are in addition to each child's disability.
The most exciting part of our classroom is that I am often able to spend more than one year teaching a child!
As I develop a relationship with each child (and their family), he/she brings their version of excitement for learning!
The listening center couch will be an inviting place for two friends to independently listen to books. The listening center seating has a designated area designed for a CD player that headphones will plug into for two children. Multiple sets of headphones have already been supplied in the classroom that are compatible with the CD player.
Two students at a time will be able to share a book!
The book sets requested with this project have multiple copies of the same title so that students may share the story while following along in a copy of the book. The titles chosen are complementary to our curriculum and themes.
