My students are in kindergarten through fifth grade with mild to severe disabilities, including Autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, and communication disorders.
"The best way to interrupt the cycle of poverty is to support children's physical, socio-emotional, and educational needs." - Cheryl Suliteanu.
Help my students to successfully participate and enjoy school! Our elementary school is in a high-poverty area and many students come to school hungry. Not all of my students are able to participate fully in their general education without extra support. These materials will help my students learn how to be successful, independent, and happy in life.
Writing and handwriting are always the hardest subject for my students. The Learning Without Tears company makes amazing products to lessen the stress that comes along with writing and handwriting. I teach students Kindergarten through 5th grade with varying needs. I choose materials for each grade level that will help my students become more successful writers. My students will love engaging in handwriting and writing activities with these materials. I will also be able to assess them with the Handwriting Tool and be able to show progress through assessing. I am also requesting an app to help with handwriting skills. Technology is a highly engaging modality to help my students progress in their skills.
