Math and Reading Are Important

Help me give my students Unlock It! Number Match, Main Street Shopping: Main Idea Game, Reading Comprehension Folder, and other hands-on materials to help them understand math and reading.

My Students

The students in my classroom have sensory processing disorders and Autism. Students often struggle with processing different environmental factors in the classroom which impact student learning.

The primary focus in our classroom is communication.

The students in the classroom often communicate with each other utilizing pictures to express their wants or needs. In our classroom, we use a hands-on approach as we cook weekly, create art projects, utilize frequent movement breaks, and incorporate items that make every aspect of academics a hands-on experience.

Each student in my classroom has an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) which provides them with a unique educational experience. Students participate in breakfast and snack in our classroom. During these times we learn how to set a table, use manners, and further our focus of communication

My Project

My students need hands-on, colorful materials to learn. These materials do just that. Yes my students are 12th grade+ but they need this to learn. The locks will allow student to recognize numbers, 1:1 correspondence to numbers, and give them the chance to use their fine motor skills to open the locks. The counting activities will reinforce skills that they need to know to be successful once they get out into post education.

Their abilities are amazing and inspiring and these games and activities will help foster that.

The file folder games will allow them to learn new skills and to transfer those skills to every day ones. They will also be able to play a board game that teaches them money skills and gives them time to socialize with one another since that is also a major part of their day. They will be able to keep their math skills going and teach them new ways to read and comprehend what they are reading. It will allow them to work on their receptive language skills.

By helping these students you are helping them learn, practice, and maintain skills that will be taught in multi-sensory ways.

Thank you for your support of these students!
