My Students

I am a special education teacher and work with students in a life skills classroom for students in third, fourth and fifth grades. My students have a variety of diagnoses and a variety of needs. These students work hard each day and have demonstrated the ability to maintain a positive attitude.

Many of my students face challenges experienced by few.

Most face these challenges head on; I am often blown away by their tenacity. I am extraordinarily lucky to spend my time with this group of students.

My Project

My Life Skills students learn best when they have repetitive hands-on opportunities to practice novel concepts. They have been working hard this year on learning to label, tell the value of coins as well as counting coins. This is a skill that will continue to be practiced often. The magnetic coins and magnetic boards will aid my students as they practice this skill. They have also done a great job working on the very difficult task of reading a clock and will need to continue to develop this skill throughout the school year. Using the magnetic clock will allow us to engage in whole group practice. Some students are working on math readiness skills such as sorting and matching. The magnetic animals requested in this project will allow those students to work on their matching and sorting skills. Other students are working on concepts such as place values. The magnetic place value frame will aid in the development of this skill. Using a magnetic ten frame will support whole group addition and subtraction instruction. I need to challenge my students regardless of what level of learning is best for them.

By obtaining a variety of math manipulatives, I will be able to provide my students with many different opportunities to practice vital math life skills.

I am always blown away by my students hard work and tenacity and feel the items included in this project would make a world of difference in their ability to acquire the math skills they will need throughout their lives.
