There are currently 6 amazing students who will be entering my Intensive Global Supports level 1 classroom in August. My classroom can have up to 8 students. My students require intensive 1-3 step direct instruction in a small setting. My students are learning how to follow directions, add 1:1 correspondence, identify numbers 1-50, read sight words, as well as learning how to identify coins, their values, and their meanings.
All of my students require different medias for writing since writing is a challenge for them and many of them have difficulty seeing the correct lines on their paper.
My students require modeling and repetition.
All of my students are also very sensory based and require a variety of sensory strategies throughout the day to help them to focus and learn. Some of my students know to ask, whereas others are still learning. My students use IPADS and Computers throughout the day to help them to learn.
All of my students are learning what is socially appropriate behavior (keeping hands to self, not excluding students from play). We help students learn this through reminders of school rules as well as modeling it for them throughout the school day.
These materials will make it easier for students in my class to remain focused on learning with less unneeded materials at their tables which can distract them and take their focus off of learning. My students will also be learning how to manage their area by keeping it cleaned and organized. My class has tables rather then desks so items can be scattered all over sometimes and going into other students boundaries, but having these organizers that go behind their chairs will help them to have a clutter free zone which will help them to learn easier without distractions at their seat.
