Functional Life Skills- On the Road to Independence
Help me give my students organization in order to complete their functional daily living activities. These activities can include folding towels, sorting laundry, assembling Tupperware, organizing silverware, etc.
Our classroom is located in the heart of the inner city in Pittsburgh, PA! My classroom is a lively life skills classroom servicing 13 students with special needs. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they all have in common; they all come to school to learn and have fun!
Although my students have intellectual delays, there is always a way to reach each and every individual student.
As a teacher, this is my #1 goal. I am always looking for new and creative ways to keep my students engaged in learning.
This organization shelf will provide structure and organization for my classroom to learn new functional everyday life skills and allow them to complete these activities throughout the school day independently. I would love to bring real life activities such as sorting laundry, silverware, folding towels, assembling socks to my classroom so they can get the practice they need in order to perform these skills in their home. These skills are a vital part to independence and as a teacher I believe it can start in the classroom in order for them to be independent, successful members in the home and community.
