My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district in Chicago , my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My students are diverse learners who have communication and learning disorders. They are lovable, energetic kids who need new technology to allow them the opportunity to communicate and learn. Some have autism, some have receptive and/or expressive language deficits, and some have articulation disorders that make them hard to understand. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students thrive on using hands on materials that stimulate their learning.

The ability to use their hands and manipulate objects helps keep their minds focused on the task at hand.

My Project

Learning is always fun when your materials are hands on and engaging. These materials will give my students the opportunity to use materials that they wouldn't normally get to use.

Diverse learners are students who learn best when they can move, use their body and manipulate objects.

All of these materials will help my students learn while they are doing small group lessons with me or working independently. All about letters pocket chart, write the letter activity, Find the letter and what's that sound will help my students recognize the letters in the alphabet along with the sounds they make. Tower of sight words game will give my students the opportunity to master sights in a fun and engaging game. The giant magnetic visual models chart will allow me demonstrate how the students can use different methods to solve mathematic equations. The magnetic dominos and stack and build addition books will allow my students to engage in math with hands on materials that can be used in small groups or during independent work.

My students concepts of literacy and mathematics concepts evolve through direct interaction with the environment and materials. These materials will provide a vehicle through which this can happen. With help from you, my students will use these items daily for engaging stations and exploring the concepts that are presented to them.
