My Students

My students are resilient. We have missed school throughout the year due to planned power shutoff days, smoke days, and fire days due to evacuations. This pandemic has created even more days we are not together, although this time it is different as we are distance learning. All of my students have special and unique needs. They all have the ability to learn, but need a little extra help to get there!

Currently, my students are all learning from home.

Most of my students have single parents who are essential workers. Many of them are left in the care of neighbors or older siblings while their parent works long hours.

Before we left school on March 13th, students were given a packet of work and a reading textbook to work from. As my students are in a Special Day Class, they need additional items to continue making the progress they have been this school year! Some of my students are participating in online learning, while others are still trying to collect computers and hotspots from the district. However as their parents are working long hours, they have struggled with getting to collect these items!

My Project

My students are all creative and enjoy playing with the Lego's inside the classroom! Lego's are the most popular toy inside the classroom. Lego's are used for much more then simple play.

Lego's allow students to practice building, problem solving skills, fine motor skills, and so much more!

Many of my students do not have any Lego's at home. These Lego's will all be used daily with my students at home instruction for help on their math. They will also help create conversations around what the students are each building during our virtual class meetings!
