My Students

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out!" Dr. Seuss

The students are in an Intensive Intervention Special Education classroom.

The majority of my students have Autism and are non-verbal. We live in a rural community in Western North Carolina. My students learn from using their hands to manipulate materials. They require tactile sensory materials to make needed gains in the classroom. The students work hard to earn time on the classroom iPads. They use this time to decompress and gain motivation to continue work in the classroom.

My Project

In our classroom we have individual work task notebooks that our students use daily all through out the day. The current bookshelf that holds our workbooks is old and broken. We are in need of a new bookshelf to hold these notebooks safely. As a special education teacher you live and breath Velcro and lamination. The amount of Velcro that we use in class is overwhelming and can be very expensive to purchase over time.

As a special education teacher, I have purchased and made workbooks that my students use daily to work on functional and academic tasks.

These notebooks are an integral part of our daily instruction. My students need to have access to these books so that they can build up there independent work skills. Having a nice bookshelf in the classroom allows me to know that the students can safely get work tasks to work in the classroom.
