Help me give my students a variety of hands-on math materials, games, and manipulatives to help motivate and engage their learning!
My classroom is a self-contained special education classroom for preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. We adapt the preschool curriculum to meet the diverse needs of the students and to increase opportunities to work on social, communication, and academic skills. It is my goal to find materials and activities to help motivate and engage my students to participate in classroom activities and to increase interactions with each other.
Preschoolers love to come to school to play, learn, and meet new friends, but some kids have barriers that make it hard to enjoy and participate in these activities without support.
The students in this classroom have high level needs, and they are not yet able to participate in a preschool classroom with a larger group of students. They need a structured environment with a small number of students and many direct teaching opportunities.
The school is located in an urban setting and serves many children who qualify for free or reduced rate lunch and experience homelessness. The district has limited funding and early childhood programs rarely receive the materials they need. Many times we need to create or purchase materials on our own in order to have the materials we need.
The materials in my project will help provide exciting and motivating learning activities in my classroom in order to engage my students and increase participation. These materials provide hands-on opportunities to work on counting, sorting, shapes, patterning, and addition that will help increase their math skills.
Through math games, hands-on exploration materials, and exciting Manipulatives, the students will be excited to participate in classroom activities and will learn the skills necessary to enter Kindergarten.
This project includes counters, manipulatives, building materials, math games, and hands on math activities. I believe with these materials, my students will be more motivated to participate in classroom activities and will soar in their learning.
