My Students

My students are completely amazing, and teach me everyday! They vary in ages and grades. They bravely fight to overcome sensory issues, learning difficulties, and disabilities. They have communication barriers-for most are non-verbal, while the others fight to get their voice out. A large part of our day is learning how to communicate as we work on speech and literacy. They have captured my heart with their love for others, and their desire to learn. They just learn different, and different is great!

My Project

Now that spring is here and students are eager to get outside, we need to educate them about the amazing world of spiders and insects. My students are very curious, and intrigued by spiders and insects. With the Discovery Insects and Spiders Kit, my students will get a hands on touch and feel experience. They will be able to use the kit to identify body parts, count legs, identify colors, and etc. The books Animals and Insects will be a great addition to our curriculum. They will be read to the students, as well as the will be read by the students. With these items as an addition to our Science Curriculum, students will become more knowledgeable of and not as frightened by spiders and insects.
