I have the great privilege of teaching an extraordinary group of students who do not let their disabilities get in their way of learning and growing. These different abilities include Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, Cognitive Disabilities, and Physical Disabilities.
In our Title I school, my students are great examples of the theme "I can do hard things." This does not just include what they are doing in school but also their lives.
All students have the ability to learn, and sometimes you just need to do things differently for them to understand the concept. My students show the pure love of kindness and friendship to all they meet.
Coming back into the classroom has been difficult for students. They were used to hands-on activities before Covid-19 and at home. The resources requested will give them more hands-on opportunities.
Students with special needs need to be able to manipulate letters, numbers, and words to help them understand how they relate to each other.
The small group activities using letters and numbers to make words and sentences will increase their ability to read.
These activities will help increase their phonemic awareness, print/letter awareness, and number and counting awareness. All of these concepts are key to increase academic and personal living knowledge.
