Home Kits for Special Needs Pre-K

Help me give my students materials that their parents can use to support instruction at home. Games will be used for turn taking. Some materials for sorting. Some items for fine motor!

My Students

Have you ever been in a special needs, preschool classroom? In our room, we have children with all disabilities. Some of my children need items that will foster communication and play skills. Some have no communication skills and are unable to verbalize their wants and needs. Some need sensory deficits met.

In my classroom, I can have up to 20 students, all with special needs.

We are a cross-categorical classroom, which means that we can have children with all disabilities. There are two special needs Pre-K classrooms in my school. I teach both of them. Half the day, I work with higher functioning children, and the second half of the day I work with kiddos who need more support to be successful.

In any given year, I have students with autism, Down syndrome, significant developmental delays, or even EBD. They are all the sweetest children there are, but they are delayed in one or more areas. We are in a public school that houses grades Pre-K-2 and special needs Pre-K.

My Project

Now that homeschooling has become a reality across our nation, many parents are struggling to support their kiddos because they don’t have all the materials we do at school. I am going to make some take home kits that I can check out to parents to work on certain skills so that their children will continue to close the gap while we are in this crazy time. My kiddos parents have so many things to pay for (therapies, food, rent) and many can’t afford the luxuries of all these extras to help their kiddos. My goal is to create these boxes so that I can take that stress away and their kiddos can still move forward.
