Hello and welcome to our page! This classroom is located in a general education high school setting. The students range from 14-18 years old and have various different disabilities.
Anyone who meets this group of young adults will leave with a big smile and a full heart.
This is my second year and I am so excited to start off a new year with my students. They made my first year here so wonderful and made me feel right at home. So this year I want to focus on making this classroom feel like home to them.
These are some items we need around the classroom. I currently have a smaller desk and my monitor takes up too much space. I downsized my desk to have more space in the classroom for student groups and flexible seating. I would hate to get a bigger desk again just to accommodate my things. The monitor stand would free up some space on my desk for me to work.
The coin sorter would expose my students to handling money, a valuable life skill.
We run a coffee shop out of our classroom. Our last project funded our cash register and now I'd like to further develop their money skills by having them sort our coins as well. No matter their level the students will always handle coins whether it is in my classroom, out on campus for lunch, at home, and out in the community.
The area rug will serve as a flexible seating option in my room. Right now we only have tables for group work. The area rug can be set up to be in the center group for the students working on an independent activity, making it more motivating and engaging, as I am short-staffed during our centers.
