My Students

Our classroom is made up of 6 Autistic Support students in grades 3rd and 4th. Some of our students are verbal and some are non-verbal and use communication devices. Our students are very active and love going outside on the playground. They also love working hard for rewards and are very fast learners. We practice social skills, academic skills, and learn how to follow school wide behavior expectations in our classroom.

Although my students learn differently, they are so happy when others treat them the same as regular education students.

They love to interact with the other students in the building during lunch and recess. They learn so much from these interactions and it is so beneficial to their social and emotional development.

My Project

My students LOVE the playground. But our school does not provide any playground toys or equipment aside from the jungle gym. Regular education students tend to have higher social skills and fully developed imaginations which means it is easier for them to create their own games. My students with special needs find it a challenge to engage with students when they don't understand how to pretend. These balls, frisbees, and jump ropes would be a simple way for my students to easily play and interact with other regular education students on the playground.

It is so beneficial for students with special needs to engage with regular education students.

This equipment would make our playground time much more than free play. We could practice taking turns, sharing, and following simple directions while improving on our social and emotional skills!
