My Students

I have started a new grade teaching sped kindergarten after 2 years working with 4th and 5th grade sped students the last 2 years. I have 5 autistic students. I have 3 students who are fluent in Spanish and know very little English. They all struggle with cognitive and fine motor issues. I want to help these children make great growth this year aiming for mastery.

My Project

The items I have selected will help my students strengthen fine motor skills while increasing cognitive skills and providing sensory needs. Children will have increased motivation with all the new hands-on activities. Lots of vocabulary building while we work on these activities that go along with on-grade-level instruction. My students are very behind in their grade-level skills. Lots of repeated instruction and repeated practice are needed every day to get my students progressing towards mastery of these skills. They get so excited to work hard and stay focused when they have activities that they can manipulate.
