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 Life Skills students learn best when they have repetitive hands-on opportunities to practice novel concepts. They have been working hard this year To lengthen the amount of time they attend to challenging math tasks, the visual timer contained in this project will support this skill. The measurement kit will support my students as they work on developing their functional measurement skills. Some of my students are working on one to one correspondence and number identification These skills will be supported with the number lock match game and the magnetic number chart. Students have been working on addition and subtraction. Using a magnetic ten frame and jumbo dice 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.
