Learning Through Literacy and Math in PPCD

My students need valuable and useful literacy and math tools such as books, CDs and counting items to decrease the number of challenges that they face having special needs.

My Students

My students are the brightest, energetic and most resilient students I've ever seen in my four years of teaching. In August, they began school for three days and were faced with the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Three of my students were displaced while others lost items needed to have a successful school year. Because of the natural disaster, we weren't able to attend school for three weeks; missing out on valuable instruction time. After the hurricane, we were moved from our campus in order to accommodate the needs of other students in our district. We quickly moved our classroom to another elementary campus to set up for the new school year without hesitation. My students learn best through familiar routines and structure and although their worlds were completely rocked, they quickly adapted to the new campus with ease.

Despite being hit with a natural disaster and having some form of a disability, it does not hinder my students from learning and reaching their greatest potential.

I currently teach preschool children with special needs (PPCD) ranging from ages 3-5. Their disabilities range from visual impairments to intellectual disabilities to autism.

My Project

The literacy component in our classroom consists of learning the alphabet along with letter sounds, reading and comprehension, expanding vocabulary. In order to expand and enhance our children's vocabulary, we must first have the necessary tools and resources. Books that are filled with rich vocabulary, illustration, various genres and essential life skill are vital.

Literacy and Math are a two core content areas that are imperative in early childhood education.

Our math component consists of a counting, shapes, colors, making patterns and the list goes on and on. We use a variation of manipulatives such as counters, form shapes and technology equipment to aid in their mathematical growth. The resources needed will provide our classroom with more than enough assistance with a variety of outlets.
