I Can Do It All by Myself!

My students need hands-on activities for independent work. The Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs will provide an excellent opportunity to reinforce those beginning sounds lessons.

My Students

My favorite sayings is if you've seen one child with Autism, you've seen one child with Autism. All of my students have Autism. They are each very different with a wide span of language and academic abilities. Our students range in academic levels of below preschool to approximately first grade level. Some are non-verbal while others just won't stop talking! And that is not a bad thing.

We talk a lot in our classroom and use toys and games as a way to improve speech as well as social skills.

Each of our students learns in a different way. While there are some who are auditory learners, most of our students are kinesthetic learners. They needed to touch and feel something to solidify the new concept.

Our school serves a low socioeconomic area where approximately 90% of our students qualify for free/reduced meals. The student makeup is approximately 60% black, 25% Hispanic, 15% white. Our classroom of 10 students very closely mirrors these numbers.

My Project

We strive for independence in our classroom. Having independent work stations will allow our students to work at their own pace while reinforcing previously taught lessons.

Learning is easier when it is fun.

Sorting "toys" into buckets is way more fun than circling the beginning sound on a worksheet. And who doesn't love magnetic mazes? Science Specimen Sorting Center? Who knew science could be so much fun? I'm secretly planning to use the Hands-On Measuring Center to reinforce place value (base 10 blocks) as well as providing them with hands-on opportunity for measuring. Our students are going to have a blast and reinforce the lessons they are learning.
