My students have needs that prevent them from picking up information in the classroom and community without clear, explicit, and repetitive instructions. They need repetition to help them learn through multiple types of input. My students often struggle with learning things as fast as their general education peers. Many levels of learning groups are taught in my classroom at the same time. This causes some students to struggle to remain focused on their work.
My students attend the 18th most diverse school in the United States.
We have free breakfast and lunch for all students. We have many students who are in transitional housing including (homeless, couch surfing and staying with other families). Our school also serves military families. Many times, behavior issues in my classroom are driven by changes in schedules, anxiety, home issues and new tasks. Additionally, some of my students struggle to focus on their learning group while another group is being taught.
Our Kindergarten through fifth grade classroom is a busy place. Many different groups happen at the same time. Kindergarten reading happens at the same time as the older students have math. Sometimes students need a place to work free of the distractions happening in the classroom. The study carrel will allow the student working to block out the other groups going on and focus on their work.
Our youngest students need more social skills lessons written especially for younger students.
The social skills mini lessons will be helpful for students with shorter attention spans. Help us help our students learn to focus and be the best students they can be.
