My Students

My students range in age from PreK to 5th grade. They come from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds with diverse needs. The common thread that brings my students together is that they all have some type of hearing loss.

My students' hearing loss range from mild to profound deficits.

Some students have hearing-aids while others have cochlear implants or have no devices at all. They all require assistance with communication, and often depend on an adult for clarification and/or interpreting with the use of sign-language.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students will encourage interactive learning at school and at home. We need your help to make this happen! The binders, notebooks, velcro dots, and other supplies will be used by the students to create a visually rich interactive learning binder. In this binder, students will engage in vocabulary, grammar, reading and literacy,

The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of, confidence, and competency in vocabulary, grammar, reading, and literacy through visual materials, graphic organizers, anchor charts, and learning games.

Interactive notebooks/binders have students create a resource to use as they continue to extend their learning. An interactive notebook works as a textbook for students that is theirs. As students create new learning pages, they can also go back and review the prior pages repeatedly and therefore build upon previous introduced material each time.

Included in the binders are simple games that reinforce skills learned. These games can be played at home with a family member which promotes interactive learning in the home environment.

I believe interacting learning notebooks are essential in teaching Deaf/HOH students literacy and grammar. My students need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
