My Students

My students are in grades nine through twelve. We are a small, public school tucked away in the mountains. My students struggle with their emotions due to varying disabilities.

We practice Community Based Instruction (CBI).

CBI is educational instruction in naturally occurring community environments providing students real-life​ experiences. My students need intensive instruction in functional and daily living skills. We run a school-wide coffee shop where employability skills are learned through actual daily sales. They are responsible for completing their biweekly time cards.

My Project

The boards games and activities will help my students in various ways.

Playing interactive games increases social interactions and improves social skills.

We call Fridays "Fun Fridays" because we work hard all week and devote Fridays to social and recreational skills.

This version of Monopoly is ten-minutes making it possible to finish an actual game. The Operation and Pictionary games are perfect team building games. The Battleship will encourage critical thinking skills as well as invite social interactions.

The Deaf Guy playing cards will be perfect for our students with hearing impairments to play with their peers. The sticker activities will allow for hand-eye coordination and improve motor skills.

The popcorn will be a reward to go along with the activities.
