Hands-On Materials

My students need hand-on learning materials and interesting visual aids, such as puzzles and books, to achieve their academic goals.

My Students

Since most of my students are non-verbal, we need to use a lot of real objects and pictures for them to be able to understand the lessons better and respond to questions by pointing to the correct object/picture. In order to keep my students' attention, we also have to do a lot of hands-on learning.

I teach a Kinder-2nd grade SDC Moderate-Severe class.

Most of my students are diagnosed with intellectual disability, while some have orthopedic impairment and multiple disabilities. My students enjoy different activities such as singing nursery rhymes, art activities, and gross and fine motor exercises. They like to move a lot and listen to music. They also enjoy activities where they can use manipulatives to learn different concepts and skills.

My Project

If my project is funded, my students will have access to more useful manipulatives and learning materials that will get their attention and interest, as well as enhance their comprehension and skills. This will help them achieve their academic and social goals and provide a strong foundation in basic skills that will prepare them better for the years ahead.

Although I teach Special Day Class to moderate-severe students, we expose them to the general education curriculum.

Currently, the district budget is limited and we are struggling with time and resources to create materials that students can use to have access to the curriculum.
