My Students

I love everything about the students that I serve. The students in Our Classroom range from Third to Fifth grade. Each student in our classroom has been diagnosed with Autism.

Our students could really benefit from resources that will provide them with sensory and educational support.

Our classroom is self contained, although each student is allotted time in the general education setting. There is one 3rd grader, one 4th, and two fifth graders, all varying in ability. The third grader is a FAST and bubbly. He loves airplanes, police vehicles, and everything CHRISTMAS! The fourth grader is an AMAZING artist and AVID reader (reading above grade level)! He writes his own comics and spends a large amount of his time in general education. There are two fifth graders: one is quiet and withdrawn, loves Garfield and all cats; and the other is a giggly, spontaneous, silly, and HUNGRY (has pica) dude!

My Project

Students with Autism benefit strongly from manipulatives and other materials. They enhance learning and give students a hands-on approach to Math and English Language Arts. It will surprise you on how much difference a counter or teddy bear can make counting easier and FUN! Students with autism also love BRAIN BREAKS! Especially after having to sit and focus for long periods of time! The sensory items will provide our students with an outlet to explore!

By donating to our Project, you will be lighting up the "educational" lives of our students with Autism!

The materials that you donate will support the students in their general education classes, while in inclusion, and through exploring their senses.
