My Students

I teach a special education class in a Title I school. I serve 30 students who range from kindergarten to fifth grade. Their disabilities range from learning disabilities to visual impairments. They come from diverse backgrounds. Some students have limited verbal abilities. Five students have limited motor skills, which limits their writing ability. Most are mainstreamed during the day into regular education classrooms. They are at least two years behind their peers. Many come from impoverished backgrounds with little parental involvement.

When working with my students and other classrooms, it is exhilarating to watch them all learn about each other.

My Project

The Versa Tiles system is perfect for little hands that need to be constantly touching and manipulating in order to facilitate learning.

My first graders crave independence and Versa Tiles will give them that independence!

They will be able to work in a small group or individually to think critically and solve problems in reading and math and then also be able to check their work and understanding without their teacher.

This is a huge goal of any teacher; to foster independence in a child's learning.

These manipulatives will be used whole group on our document camera, in small groups without and without the teacher and during independent center time in both reading and math.
