Learning Through Books!

My Students

Our classroom is made up of nine hardworking, bright, effervescent and remarkable students. The classroom is a substantially separate room in a Title I school, in which each student has an autism diagnosis.

Each student brings something special to the classroom!

They all have a range of different abilities. Our main goal in our room is to promote independence in many areas including, self-care skills, self-regulation, social skills, academics, gross motor skill, fine motor and much more throughout the year!

My Project

Throughout the school year, we gather as a class to read books! This year I want to focus on some important topics for a month long activity!

Reading is an integral part of our learning, especially about the community and emotions!

The Community Helpers books will allow my students to learn about the importance of people within the community! They will learn about police officers, teachers and firefighters and their roles. The Emotions books will allow the students to understand a wide variety of emotions they may feel or others may feel. They will learn the importance of learning to share their feelings with others. The books will help my students understand the importance of the world around them!
