My grades 3 to 5 autistic students need hands-on materials to support the learning of mathematical concepts. Money, patterns, time, timers, fraction games and other math manipulatives are essential for their education.
If we can experience math, we can learn it. We are a self-contained classroom for children in grades 3-5 with autism spectrum and related disorders in a low income school. Our classroom is a small converted locker room. We need all the help we can get to make school and learning relevant, welcoming and fun.
As a self contained special education class, we need to come up with most of our curriculum materials on our own. District provided textbooks must be supplemented with materials our students can see, interact with and understand so that they can learn, retain, and generalize skills.
My students have autism, and even more than most children they need to learn using multiple modalities. These materials include items that will allow my students to see, feel, and try out new math concepts. Some of the items requested include: time timers, which show time going by as a sliver of red slowly disappears, the Build a Monster game that allows students to use their hands and play while working on memorization, patterning trays that allow students manipulate actual objects as they explore projects. Pizza fraction magnets will help students to understand the usefulness of fractions in daily life. This assortment will enable my students to generalize the skills they learn in textbooks to the real world.
Your contribution to the funding of this grant will enable my students, this year and for years to come, to learn to count, add, subtract, follow patterns, use money, tell time, and most of all to love learning. These materials will make the abstract concrete.
