My Students

I teach a class of students with Special Needs or as we call it, Life Skills. My school is located in the middle of a large city; it is urban and impoverished. The community surrounding the school is very supportive of our school and being involved. The student population is mainly comprised of Latino and African American cultures.

They have special needs which involve Autism, Down Syndrome, Cognitive Disabilities, Blind/Low Vision, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, and many others.

All of these needs make my students oh so very, very special to me! My students range in ages from 5 to 10 or grades Kindergarten through Third.

My Project

My students are in grades Kindergarten through 3rd and are all at various learning levels with language arts. I need more varied level materials in order to meet the needs and goals of each one of my students. These materials will help to meet my highest and lowest academic groups. We have had the same materials in our classroom for many years now, and they are just wearing out from all the use.

Many of my students have CVC and sight word goals and these materials specifically target those areas for students to work on independently.

I am not able to get materials like this with my own money so this project would help our classroom tremendously.
