My students need individualized hands-on learning materials to keep engaged and focused during their center time.
I am a lucky special education teacher of 8 amazing students. Despite the many challenges they face each day, they are loving, creative, and hardworking students. I am looking to update my current literacy centers to provide my students more opportunities and resources to expand their knowledge, skills, strengths, and independence.
Despite the many challenges my students face each day they love to learn, explore, and socialize.
Our class is full of curious students who love to learn and explore. My class has children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Development Delays, ADHD, and Down Syndrome.
The purpose of this grant is allowing me to be up-to-date my literacy centers to meet the needs of my current students. I have spent my summer cutting, laminating, and organizing new literacy centers for the upcoming school year. I am almost there, just need a few more items to make them complete.
I am excited to begin my 15th year of teaching in my special education classroom. I have seen this program grow so much over the past 14 years. I have spent many hours creating, organizing, and planning out my literacy lessons and centers for my unique learners.
My students have a passion to learn and I have a passion to make it enjoyable.
My goal is to create new individualized, motivating, and updated literacy centers. The Astrobrights copy paper will allow me to make my centers a bit more colorful and appealing to students. The CVC word builder cards will able me to individualize the centers to students specific skills.
I have a new mystery sight word center that the students are going to love! It is going to engage them and challenge them to use their current phonics skills and apply it to new more challenging words. This center requires a large amount of magnetic alphabet letters. I am requesting three sets (along with organizing tubs) to allow each student to be able to work individually in their own space and at their own pace.
I have also made many new digraph centers that students will need to apply their phonics skills to correctly place digraphs into the stories they are reading. I am excited about this center because it allows my students who have fine motor difficulties to complete a center with independence, without their fine motor skills getting in their way. How you ask? Velcro! Each of these centers take a large number of Velcro,but this allows students to place their words right on top of their reading and they won't move. They can bump them, drop them, and sneeze on them and they won't move!
