My Students

My classroom is designed for students with moderate to severe disabilities (Autism, Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disabilities, Speech Impairments, and Other Health Impairments) who are not able to access the general education curriculum without significant modifications. My students need extensive direct instruction and support in multiple settings to acquire, maintain, and generalize academic and functional skills necessary for application in school, home, and community environments. They depend on others for most daily living needs, and usually require extensive ongoing support in adulthood.

"Sorry about the laughter volume, chaos, and mess, but we are learning".

This quote seems to encompass my classroom environment well, especially on recipe Friday! My goal is to provide the skills necessary so that my students fulfill their potential and become productive members of society.

My Project

We are a classroom of visual and tactile learners. We are in need of a laminator to help protect visual aids that we will use year round. The students get very excited when they have work that is hands-on. They are more engaged and willing to complete the task.

We would use the laminator to help make daily work more durable, save on paper consumption and to create reusable tracing templates.

By having these assignments/manipulatives laminated, it will help ensure the longevity of the activity and help represent their learning clearly. Thank you for considering giving to your project!
