My Students

I teach in a cluster program within a neighborhood school. All of my differently-abled students have achieved a great deal while in our classroom. One third grade student came from another school and was considered a real problem. Although he was challenging, he achieved a great deal and his behavior and academics greatly improved.

This is the student I am most concerned about.

Although his family works tirelessly with him, they lack the resources to provide him with the enrichment he requires.

My Project

Although my student participates in our daily activities and Circle Time, his family lacks the enrichment activities that will help him continue to make progress. He requires activities that will reinforce his Literacy, Math and Fine Motor skills. His mother is a full-time student and needs activities to keep him occupied while she is studying.

Being an English Language Learner and having attention issues, my student needs extra help in order to sustain the progress he has made.

I've included some activities that will not only help him achieve his IEP goals, but will reinforce language skills that will help him to succeed.
