My Students

The students have a variety of needs including, but not limited to, limited or no exposure to peers, academics, communication, social or motor concepts. Many of the children have limited or no language and are working on basic and appropriate communication. The children also have limited social-emotional or social-behavior skills that are developmental below their age range and they are being introduced to appropriate social interactions as well as social communicational skills for themselves, to engage with peers, and to engage with adults.

My students are special because they are children and children are a miracle and a blessing to teach, learn from, and watch them grow into excited and participating life-long learners.

My classroom has a variety of students, though most of the students are from a low-economic area.

My classroom consists of children with specialized needs (Autism, learning, physical, and motor disabilities [fine and gross], developmental delays, and communication disabilities). The classroom also contains children with typical developmental progress who help provide modeling for the students with delays. The combined format also provides each student the opportunity to connect, make friendships, and learn about the diversity around them and how to empathize with each other.

My Project

I am requesting support in developing my students math center activities. Some of the supplies I am requesting include pattern blocks and designs which will allow students to explore shapes and how shapes make up pictures and objects around them. Another item includes manipulatives that will allow for thematic engagement, magnetic exploration and learning about numbers and how numbers and math concepts are everywhere around them.

Hands-on manipulatives allow students to actively engage and explore.

By adding a variety of manipulatives to my classroom, I'm helping my students increase their curiosity, ability to seek out information and to help develop their problem solving skills.

My students enjoy the basic math supplies we have now, but I would like to expand the center to help build up a deeper understanding of math and allow for more students to be able to participate in the center without limiting the number of supplies the students effectively need to explore the concepts fully.
