My Students

Do you remember the excitement you felt when you did your first science experiment? Do you remember the feeling you had when you learned where you came from and how different the world was around you? Please help my students feel the same exact way we all have at one point!

I teach at a school that specializes in special education.

I have 15 students in grades K-1 who have a range of disabilities, including autism, ADHD and behavioral disorders. My students are very visual and kinesthetic learners who need manipulative's to help them succeed in school!

My Project

Sometimes it is difficult to help my students understand the world around them, where they came from and what makes Earth the best place to live! Using the social studies resources kit, I will be able to bring to life the cultures around them, the beautiful landscapes we see when we look out the window and explain the past, present and future of our world. Have you ever seen the look on a child's face when they create the first "volcano" or watch as a caterpillar becomes a butterfly? The "I Can Do" Science Discovery kits will provide my students the stimulation and hands-on experiences to understand and relate to the wonderful world of science.

I've always been told the most important thing for a teacher to do is connect real-life experiences with our children.

These materials will help me do just that and the impact that will be created in these children's lives will be second to none.
