Mrs. Nichols from Tampa FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students magnetic teaching manipulatives to learn fractions, place value and multiple other mathematical concepts.
My favorite quote is: A child may not always remember what you taught them, but will always remember how you made them feel. I want my students to feel loved and valued. I want to help them become the best they can be and be proud of themselves! My materials request is just one small step!
My students range from 3rd to 5th grade and all are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
My students represent a wide spectrum of abilities and challenges. Each student has different communication styles, learning needs, learning styles and sensory needs. Such a spectrum of student needs makes meeting each need challenging. This spectrum is why a teachers of students with autism require so many different materials. I am so grateful to DonorsChoose for helping me meet each students needs.
My students with autism love to work with manipulatives that stick (magnetic) on a board. Not only are they fun to use, the fact that once placed on the board, the objects do not move helping to keep visuals in place and organized.
My most successful teaching interactions take place when I am working on my magnetic white board.
I constantly make items and attach magnetic tape to the back so it can be used as a teaching aid on the front board. When items are magnetized, they stay in place when you want them to and they easily move when it is time. My students with autism do not have strong fine motor skills and often have difficulty with organization. If they are working with manipulatives that are not magnetized, the pieces are all over the floor and rarely take on the intended form. Magnetic items make my teaching more concrete and easy for my kids to interact with. I would like to purchase magnetized teaching materials to help my students learn fractions and place value.
