My Students

Small but mighty are my little learners. My two classes of preschools may have all been identified as having special needs but they are always excited about exploring and learning,

Our classroom is home to two half day Early Childhood Special Education classes.

With up to 12 children per class, they keep myself and my assistant on our toes. The children are mostly 3 and 4 year olds with developmental delays in the moderate to severe range. All of the students are from Benton Harbor and many of our families are at or below the poverty line. We are a part of an Early Childhood center with other preschool programs and one other special education classroom.

My Project

My students need a variety of hands on Alphabet learning materials, such as books, puzzles, and letter sound tubs. These materials are designed to supplement a curriculum that I adapted this summer using animals to teach the letters of the alphabet. I have collected stuffed animals for each letter and storybooks but our room is in desperate need of interesting alphabet materials to go along with what I have made thus far. I selected durable items that will allow students to experience the alphabet through developmentally appropriate play,

These additional learning materials will be used everyday as part of this year long curriculum and will help give my students much needed exposure to the alphabet.

These materials will also help facilitate increased language development in these language delay children.
