My Students

My students are a exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning to imitate sounds or wash their hands. The one thing they all have in common is that they have daily struggles and barriers that typical kids don’t. I love that although we have many challenges and barriers to overcome we always end our day with a song and a smile!

My Project

These supplies will be used to make and organize academic resources, visual schedules, token boards, and communication pictures. The students in my class need structure and organization to feel secure and be successful throughout their school day. Visual schedules are a must have! Social situations are difficult for many; to learn those skills individuals stories are a must have. Some of my students struggle with communication and require pictures to show staff what they want and need. I can’t imagine not being able to tell someone what I needed! So, it is so important to be able to provide these tools for them.
