My Students

I work with a group of loving, excited, energetic kids. Every day my students come to school and I challenge them to expand their horizons and push their abilities to the limit. My students come with some challenges.

My class is composed of students with serve and profound cognitive, physical and emotional disabilities.

Their disabilities include autism, down syndrome, and other cognitive delays that would be a challenge for most teachers, but I feel it makes them unique and exiting to work with. My students also face the challenge of coming from a community that struggles with poverty. Although the challenges are great, my students and I work hard everyday to learn the most that we can in a fun and engaging way.

My Project

My students are very visual learners. They love to touch, feel, and play with things that they use to learn. Due to their disabilities, most of my students have limited language and fine motor skills. This makes traditional methods of learning math difficult for us to use. We need more items that can be used by little hands.

These giant tracing numbers, magnetic number tins, and unlock it number matching will allow my students to use their busy hands to learn about numbers, counting, and other math strategies.

The giant tracing numbers will allow my students to use more gross motor skills to learn to write their numbers. The magnetic number tins will allow my students to use real-world, engaging tools to solve math problems and count. My students will love using problem solving skills and practicing their fine motor skills with the unlock-it number matching locks. All of these activities will give my students more access to the math curriculum and more ways to express their learning.
