My students need soccer balls, goals, and jerseys because many of them never have the opportunity to play.
My students are Preschool Autism kiddos, who range from non-verbal to extremely verbal. They range from 3 to 5 years old and I have a mixed group of personalities and needs. My students are my warriors and the heart of our school. They have so many obstacles to overcome yet they are here everyday striving to learn and develop more skills.
My school is located in the heart of the desert in Apple Valley, CA.
My program is an intensified program, which is a 5 hour program verses a 3 hour preschool program.
My classroom is unique because learning doesn't just happen at work time, we strive to create teachable moments all the time. My classroom has 6 different centers that focus on academics (literary, math, fine motor skills), social emotional skills, as well as a sensory area. My students are the ones who direct the learning and I aim to create my classroom and curriculum in a way that best meets their needs. I'm a firm believer in organized sports and that every child no matter their disabilities should have the opportunity to play and learn.
This project will help provide students with autism access to sports in their own school. Many times because of their child's disability and lack of opportunities many of our parents will not enroll their child into sports.
I believe that sports participation is a critical catalyst for educational success; it's been shown to improve academic performance, cognitive skills, large Gross motor skills and educational achievement.
My students will learn to how to kick a ball,
score a goal, engage in back and forth play with peers and play on a team. I'm super excited for our soccer team in our class and with our buddy classroom.
I will always advocate to bring sports and new opportunities into my students' lives, I'm dedicated to learn alongside them.
