My Students

I teach a group of ten wonderfully, bright and happy children. They are in a special education classroom, on a modified curriculum, which means they learn at their own pace and are not subject to the general education curriculum or learning timeline. My students are in my classroom due to a label of Intellectually Disabled, Other Health Impaired, and/or Autism. They require a lot assistance to learn and to complete activities. Some need assistance with gross motor and fine motor skills such as hand under hand for writing activities. Others are still being potty trained, and all have trouble retaining and recalling educational information. I have children that have been hospital/home bound for medical reasons, and this is their first year in a school. They are my superstars, and they love music, painting, dancing and most things in color and interactive.

"All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and someone who believes in them." - Magic Johnson

My Project

I am looking to make my guided reading groups a bit more engaging and hands on. With some colored printable games, jumbo magnifiers, and leap from game, I can add some fun and color to their reading class. Giving the students manipulatives during these activities helps make them more accountable and active participants during these reading activities. Jumbo magnifiers will be used by the children to help them find family words or sight words within text. The Leap Frog game will help children practice their letter matching skills as well as fine motor skills. And finally the color ink will allow me to print practice pages for word work practice, in bright colors instead of black and white.

Learning does not always have to be done strictly from text books and in black and white.

Games, magnifiers, and color copy activities are just one way to help motivate and engage my students. These educational activities can be completed by students on all preforming levels.
