My Students

My students are full of energy and are ready to explore their world. However, my students have a hard time understanding the world around them.

My students are diagnosed on the autism spectrum and most are low functioning.

Due to my students' disabilities, they face many obstacles daily, including communicating, daily life skills, understanding the world around them, and dealing with why things change.

My students are all currently isolated at home, most do not go outside due to not having backyards. Since they are isolated at home my students engage in online tasks for academic instruction which includes Google classroom, Boom learning cards and watching videos. My students attend school for 12 months due to their disability and with schools most likely closed into the fall my students will be doing this for July and August too.

My Project

These materials will be shipped directly to a second grader's house for him to use during remote learning and therapy sessions. My student is doing well with online tasks however, he really needs in person hands-on activities to help with his social skills, math skills and for writing.

These items will motivate him to continue his learning at home.

My student loves puzzles so I am requesting new puzzles to help motivate him at home to complete academic tasks. I am requesting operation file games, number and letter writing dry erase books so he can complete academic tasks off of the computer. I am requesting Pop the Pig and Sneaky Snacky Squirrel board games so he can work on his social skills with his sisters as well as his fine motor skills. I am also requesting magnetic tiles because they are great for fine motor, social skills as well as an imaginative play motivator.

I am hoping by having these materials provided for my student I can help ease some of the stress of not being in school currently. I am also hoping having some new motivators will help him stay occupied and complete academic tasks.
