I am lucky to teach 11 incredible students with special needs and abilities. We work hard, every day, to meet the needs of the students. We are a small community with a big heart.
As my students get older and their learning progresses we need more and more materials to keep them engaged and excited about their learning.
My students especially love science and social studies as well as hands-on learning and games for math.
My students work hard, from the moment they walk into the classroom until the moment they get on the bus to go home. The students in my classroom make me excited to go to work every day. I learn as much from them as they do from me.
My students love hands-on learning, especially in science. STEM projects are incredibly valuable in classrooms-, particularly in special needs classrooms. We can work on so many skills including following directions, teamwork, problem-solving, social skills, vocabulary, asking questions, and researching answers. One activity I am excited about is the energy STEM project. My students will learn all about energy, how to conserve energy and real-life examples of how to combat these energy issues. Other activities I know my students will love are math file folder games and cool new social studies activities. My students have such different and specific interests and it's so awesome to have materials and different ways to teach the students when the opportunity presents itself. More materials mean more thoughtful questions and, in turn, more learning!
