Mrs. Yarko from New Berlin IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students 32GB Apple iPods that they can use independently.
Creating an exciting and inspirational place to learn in a Special Education room is more difficult then it looks. All of my students learn completely differently and need constant redirection to be engaged. My students learn at different speeds and in completely different ways than most peers. They also have disabilities that can make learning with just plain old books and papers more difficult than regular education peers.
Even though my students learn differently and are seen as "special" they have so much to give the world.
My students are very loving and caring for all students in and out of our room. They do not see others like they are seen and they work as hard as possible even though most daily things are very difficult for them to understand and accomplish.
My classroom houses an array of disabilities including intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism spectrum disorder, specific learning disabilities, and genetic disorders. The typical student in my class reads between a first and fourth-grade level. They struggle with memorizing how to spell and compose simple sentences. Most students are able to read around a 1st to 4th-grade level.
When my students are working independently they come across issues like not knowing how to spell a word and how to stop and find a teacher or aide and ask them.
I am wanting my students to start learning more independent skills that they will use in the real world and with these iPod's they would be able to use Siri and ask assistance for their issue.
They will be using these iPods for things like: spelling, math, music therapy, and many other supports. They will be able to keep the iPods on them and use them in all classes.
