I am a Special Education teacher where I service students Kindergarten through 5th grade. Many of my students come from a variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds and their economic circumstances range from disadvantaged to low-middle class. All of my students have learning disabilities, which makes it difficult for them to succeed academically.
My students already struggle with delays in learning without all the additional hurdles covid has caused this year.
It is hard to handle the absences, illnesses and keeping the students caught up with their school work. Many don't have access to the needed technology or the support to continue any learning at home. I just want to provide as much support as possible to my students.
One area of difficulty for my students is reading on grade level. Because I service such a wide range of grade-levels, it is difficult to have quick and easy access to books on each student’s instructional level. My proposal would be to create and enhance a library of low-leveled readers in the resource classroom to give students more opportunities to practice reading text on their instructional level and build fluency.
I also want to be able to print math games in color for students to use to aid in the enjoyment of learning.
