My Students

My students are unique in their own way and so lovable. We are a CCAC (Cross Categorical Adapted Curriculum) class which is a program that allows students to receive academics taught using the Extended Content Standards and have a significant cognitive delay. Our students are unable to participate in the "Core" Curriculum in a pullout or inclusive setting due to deficits in academic, social, communication, physical, and adaptive needs.

My students are a joy to teach, they can always put a smile on your face no matter your mood.

They are very caring and eager to learn even if they learn differently, they teach me at times. I love my kids. I'm passionate about their well-being, growth and learning. In the Picture below is a hands on scene we created for our kids to act out The Three Bears story. They did a great job! They loved to say "It's just right"!

My Project

I am asking for a variety of items to help our children in many different ways. Seat cushion will help with sensory, sitting still for short periods of time and focus on tasks at hand. The better boards help children see their work better and allows them to apply more pressure. Writing eggs help children learn to grasp pencils.

The Lego's and Gear Builders help our children with hand-eye coordination, fine-motor skills and their creativity.

Weighted fidgets are used as a sense of calming, kind of like the vest but these are items they can hold or lay in their lap.

It will be nice to have these items on hand for our children in the classroom and not have to wait on someone to bring them in. Please consider donating. We as well as the children will greatly appreciate these items.
