My Students

I currently teach a 15:1:2 special education class. My students are in grades kindergarten, first and second. My students have a lot of different needs academically, behaviorally and emotionally. For this reason I need an abundance of supplies and resources to help me meet each students specific needs.

My Project

These various resources are to help my students with independent practice of skills, group work and teacher led instruction. Some of the items are to help with sensory processing delays, auditory processing delays and learning disabilities. The social emotional cards will help facilitate appropriate conversations with peers and help them progress towards mastering their social emotional goals.

My students are a great bunch.

Each of them learn in different ways so for this reason it's important for me to have a wide variety of materials to help meet each of their learning goals. With your help and donations I will be able to provide more learning opportunities for them. Thank you!
