My Students

My students are truly amazing. They push themselves daily to defeat all odds that are placed in their way. My students are in a special education preschool classroom. The students in my class fall on the Autism spectrum in some way or another. Most of the students in my class learn through exploring and need different ways for materials to be explored.

Every student in my class loves to learn and finds new ways to explore new material on their own.

Each day our students reach new levels in their education and we get to watch their excitement grow as they discover new things. Every day I try to push my students past their disability to reach every possibility that awaits them!

My Project

My students learn in many different ways but learning with their hands is the most fun. Each day we strive to work on our fine motor and our hand strengths. The squigz allow for my students to build things and strengthen their hand. This helps them learn and develop skills through fun and exciting activities.

We are always striving to find new and exciting ways to teach our students and make their days exciting.

My students learn greatly through their ability to touch different materials. The water mat allows them for a fun and exciting way to identify colors or find new items hidden in the water. All of these toys allow my students another way to learn and creates an environment that is exciting and engaging to them.
