My Students

My class consists of children age eight to eleven with autism, one of whom comes from a military family with a parent stationed elsewhere.

A look into my classroom would reveal students working on a variety of skills in small groups or one-on-one with a teacher.

They pay close attention to modeling from adults and complete like activities with prompts until independent. These students thrive on structure, routine, and predictable formats. Their school day includes a mix of academics and daily living skills with a large focus on communication, sensory management, and social skills.

My Project

A few of my students are developing number recognition and many others are working on the concept of addition. Hands-on manipulatives and fun game-based activities motivate them to engage with the instruction because my students--all boys--LOVE to play. They need more than just a workbook, modeling from a teacher, and drill/practice opportunities to learn.

It all adds up--threading their love of toys and play into learning numbers and addition can only result in a win-win combo for students and teachers.

Fun learning cards like Snap It Up, math file folder activities, and the magnetic numbers/counters help math come alive from traditional paper-based activities and bring new excitement to small group instruction. Board games like Sum Swamps and Sums in Space create more opportunities to practice and improve math skills as we carry the academic learning over to leisure and group play.

Please consider supporting me to develop a solid foundation in number recognition and addition that gives students the skills to advance through future math concepts.
