My Students

Be an important component of our classroom, be the last piece of the puzzle, help our students succeed in a world that they do not fully understand.

Our students have been diagnosed with Autism and their abilities range from moderate to severe.

They are loving affectionate kids that deserve to be exposed to all the aspects of education. Some are inquisitive and eager to learn, but require alternative teaching tools. Students with Autism depend on manipulatives, tangibles,and visuals to ensure that they reach their full potential. They attend a Title 1 school in a low income area. Funds are very low and the materials are scarce.

My Project

The materials requested will be used to expose the students to the curriculum that their typical schoolmates enjoy on a daily basis. The human body model will provide them with a tangible, they will be to touch and see the many organs and parts our body is composed of and they will have a better understanding of how their bodies work. Learning to identify body parts will prove beneficial when expressing pain or discomfort. The building a sentence program will help our students develop and practice expressing their needs and want in full sentences. The materials requested to ensure that each student will be given the chance to reach his or her full potential.

Your donation will provide our students with tools necessary to their learning.

It will make the learning experience a little less challenging. The materials you help donate to our classroom will contribute to our students success.
