My Students

My classroom is a self-contained second and third-grade special education class for students with a variety of disabilities.

My kids are hard-working, friendly, and every day they face their challenges with a smile on their faces.

My students have a mixture of disabilities, including autism, Down syndrome, chromosome disorders, and other developmental disabilities. My students struggle with their communication, social, adaptive, fine motor and gross motor skills. They need extra support with their academics. My school is one of the largest in our district with over 90% of our students qualifying for the federal free lunch program.

My Project

My students struggle with their fine motor skills. I would like writing tablets to make learning to write letters and numbers more engaging and fun. We work on our multisensory reading every day and part of the program is to practice our letter formation. The tablets allow us to practice our letters in a colorful way without wasting paper.

Hands-on counting activities help my students learn to count independently while keeping it exciting.

The variety of counting activities (the bears, nuts, cones, keys, and tubes) will allow me to keep the kids from getting bored with the same activities. Once students master counting the activities are placed in task bins where they learn to work independently.
