Some of the students in my classroom have autism, and some are nonverbal, but this does not define who they are. My students are individuals - they have personalities, they have feelings, they have wants and needs - just like all the other kids in the school. My students are funny, caring, and smart (oh so smart!). They want and deserve the same opportunities and experiences as other students in the school and I want that for them too. All of my students are capable of learning, and my classroom helps them learn how to learn.
The activities described below will allow my students to have hands-on experiences and resources available to them that they were not able to have during the COVID shutdown.
