As a special education teacher in a low socioeconomic Title I school, all the students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. My class consists of 13 students. My kids are faced with many challenges in and outside the classroom. They are academically two years below grade level. Many of my students come from single parent homes. Although my kids have varying disabilities (LD, Autism, ED and Mentally Handicapped), they are eager to learn and succeed. I want to provide an atmosphere that is safe, and welcoming. Help me engage and inspire my students by becoming a partner in their learning.
Providing students with flexible seating helps empower by having some degree of choice and control over their environment.
Giving my students the choice where they sit and with whom.
It allows them to change their location and positions as needed.
Most special needs children have difficulty sitting still, these seating cushion allows my students to wobble and move.
The array whiteboards help my students learn multiplication using manipulatives. It will teach my students to line up their symbols in a straight orderly way. Special need students have difficulty with spacial sense so this will assist them in keeping each line completely straight.
