The students of P369K at P5K have no science textbooks. They do not have a science classroom, nor any sort of science immersion. P369K serves students with severe special needs. The population of children that I work with are classified as having severe emotional disturbances. Many of them cannot read, most are working way below grade level, yet their level of curiosity remains high. I have found that the best way that I can teach these children and have them actually learn and remember the material is by using multiple approaches to teaching the same subject. And, like any kids their age, my students LOVE videos. It would be of great assistance to me if I had some of the Magic School Bus videos to show to my kids. They are engaging enough to capture the attention of my students with attention deficit problems and they provide wonderful educational experiences for those who learn better from listening, rather than reading. They will supplement my lessons on things like the food web, animals, photosynthesis, the water cycle, the human body, weather and so much more. Of course, these videos will be appropriate for the emotional maturity of all of my kindergarten through fifth grade students. It is imperitive that students with special needs are presented with information in several different ways in order to guarantee that you reach them in one way or another. These videos would really help to generate interest in specific science units.
