My Students

I work with special needs students who teach me new things everyday. Many of my students come from low income households. Daily life can be a struggle for many students at my school. My students face these daily struggles in addition to the struggles they may face from their disability.

Together, we grow stronger everyday.

I advocate for my students to receive all the services and support they may need. My students put a smile on my face daily by making progress however big or small that may be.

My Project

Using multisensory tools in the Learning Letters Activity Center complete set to play with letters helps students learn how the letter is formed in addition to the letter name. Searching for letters that are partially hidden, forming letters with play dough, connecting manipulatives to form letters all seem like play to students. Students get excited to use tools such as tongs in the Gunball grab game and they think it is just part of the game when it is actually building finger strength too! After using these fun tools, my students demonstrate their skills by using markers to write letters and glue sticks to proudly mount their work on card stock for display.

Learning letters can be fun!

Students are required to sit and listen for longer periods of time than their bodies and minds are ready for. Lets give them opportunities to move and engage, build and play, create and explore while learning letters.
