My Students

I am currently teaching a Special Day class with 10 students in grades 3-4. In our classroom, we are a diverse community. My students are attending a Title 1 school, and most do not have access to resources to meet their needs. Our school is 97% English Language Learners and work best when provided with visual aides and manipulatives.

My students learn best through visuals and hands on learning.

My students have learning disabilities that include autism spectrum disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They are very active and love any chance they have to work with hands on material. They enjoying reading books and independently creating projects to further their understanding of the subject matter. All of my students try their best and work hard to achieve their goals.

My Project

This year my students will begin working through our Life Science units. My students have limited exposure and need the hands-on STEM learning activities at their levels to further their understanding of the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).

The materials will create an active learning environment by understanding and watching a volcano explode in front of their very eyes.

In addition, these materials will allow my students to learn the content through print and hands-on activities providing the students access across all content areas. They will be able to look at a life-size human body, understand, and identify the different parts of the body. All of our science lessons will be reinforced through Brain Pop Jr. providing another learning aid to further their knowledge. allowing my students to further their learning and understanding.
