My Students

I have a great class with 10 energetic and vibrant students and three wonderful paraprofessional aides. All of my students have various IEP goals, behaviors, and speech delays.

My students are in Pre-K and kindergarten and are diagnosed with autism.

I currently have ten students, a number which may gradually increase at any moment. None of my students are able to effectively communicate basic wants, needs or emotions. Currently, we are using picture icons to support their communication needs.

My students are energetic, bright and very eager to learn. They range in age from three years to five years old. Our school is a Title I site. My students come to school to be loved, appreciated and taught. They have lots to overcome, but they still come to school with smiles on their faces that brighten up my day. These little ones are learning so quickly! We work every day on their various IEP goals, social skills and speech, and language acquisition, strengthening their fine motor skills along with our new curriculum.

My Project

Learning is fun in our PreK/K Classroom. We can use some materials to aide the learning experience of my students. these can be used during distance learning for colors, coloring, and number sense.

Distance Learning and in lacssroom learning are becoming intertwined and quite possibly the norm for education.

These materials will be used to learn and grow via distance learning and be used in the classroom, when school resumes. The TPT gift card will be used to purchase much needed materials such as Sight word materials and Distance Learning materials such as Boom cards.
