My students need file folders and velcro to make work.Students need a laminator and pouches to save their art. My students need a paper center to access their file work.
Many of my students are preparing for kindergarten, yet lack the basic concepts of math, shapes, colors, and so forth. Having them participate in file folder work that can be repeated is essential in their learning basic numerical concepts as well as literacy and basic personal information.
The students I work with are between the ages of 3-5 years old and have special needs.
Most of the time they all have different developmental ages; some being able to read at age 4, while others are working on just sitting at the table and completing a simple task (18 months). Research and personal experience have found that using file folder work that is interactive, simplistic in design, and repetitive is the most effective in helping my young students catch up academically with their peers. Those that are struggling with concepts are able to work on specific file work time and again until they are able to complete the task without help and are able to generalize the skill. Due to the variety of students and range of skills, it is hard to have something for everyone and it is very time consuming. I strive to have something for everyone that they are are to complete as well as challenging work, that with scaffolding, they are able to complete.
With the supplies requested, my students would have access to various file folder activities; from matching upper and lower case letters, quantity to numerals, matching and sorting, and even name identification. The use of the laminitor and various size pouches ensures that the materials will last and the paper center will not only house the file work, but give children the opportunity to display independence identifying their own cubbies and putting away their work when completed. Because each child has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), their table work is customized to their own needs. Assessing, prepping, and compiling file work for my current caseload of 12 is financially consuming and time exhausting. Because my class is ever growing, due to children turning 3 and the IDEA law stating that all children turning 3 must have school services, I am always doing work at home. Having a stock of various laminates and file folders will help ensure that I have work for all student.
With your generous contributions, each child will be working on individualized academic tasks that will enable them to be placed in an appropriate kindergarten setting; whether it be in special education, resource, or general education.
Elementary has become so academically driven, that the preschoolers need to be exposed and posse a strong foundation of basic academic skills to be able to be successful in their education to come.Read More
