My Students

My class consists of students who have moderate to severe disabilities. This includes students with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. Many of the students have communication and fine motor deficits.

All of the students have difficulties engaging in activities and staying on task.

Some have visual impairments which make it challenging to see regular type. All of my students want to try their hardest to participate and stay on task but their disabilities sometimes interfere with this. They can be very districtable and typical pen and paper assignments do not always hold their attention.

My Project

These classroom Scholastic and Time magazines will help my students to learn about current events while focusing on their academics.

My students love the colorful magazines and the technology that comes with each of the subscriptions.

The content of these magazines consists of science, social studies, life skills, community and current events. They also imbed basic math and language arts academics throughout the magazines and on the student devices. The students are enjoying themselves so much that they do not even realize that they are learning. They enjoy learning about the world around them in a way that keeps them engaged.
