My Students

I teach K-1st grade in an inclusion class for students with Social Behavior Disability. I love that my students are working very hard to manage their behavior and social skills.

My students are wonderful, smart, and very loving.

They have good days and bad days, but, once redirected, they are ready and eager to learn. They absolutely love hands-on, active, and engaging projects. They get so excited when they proudly identify letters and sounds that they have been working on. As a special education teacher, I love seeing the face of a child when they learn something new. My students are truly one-of-a-kind!

My Project

The Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs are a great tool for phonics and keeping kids interested in learning. The children will be able to learn from them because they can have a hands-on experience with every sound in our alphabet. This is the perfect set to teach early learning and phonetics.

The Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs will give me the opportunity to review letters each day and will prompt discussion and stories with the objects inside.

These tubs can be useful for building vocabulary as well as teaching about letter sounds. They can be used each week to introduce the letter sound and then, throughout the week, I can make reference to them in teacher-led activities and in independent work during centers.
