My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have Autism. Our class is made up of students ranging from Kindergarten to 4th grade. The majority of their school day is spent in our classroom where they rotate through a variety of work stations and centers to help them learn content that is geared towards their individual levels of performance. Each student is extremely smart and willing to learn new things. We were a brand new classroom in the 2016-2017 year, so we are doing what we can to make our wonderful classroom even better.

My Project

In our classroom, we have a life skills center where students focus on a different skill every month. We have limited it to every month due to the lack of sufficient supplies to adequately practice the skills that the students are learning on paper. Students have a task analysis of each skill and then have the opportunity to practice that skill.

The materials in this project will help us create a minimum of 12 new life skills projects that we don't have sufficient material for already.

We will be working on valuable skills such as, folding shirts, folding washcloths, folding socks, sorting lights & darks in laundry, washing the table, vacuuming, setting the table, making a PB&J, washing dishes, brushing teeth, sweeping and using the dust pan - just to name a few skills.

The lamination we are requesting will help us make the visual supports that the students need to help them independently complete the tasks. It is important that they learn how to do these skills so that they can be more helpful outside of the classroom setting.
