My Students

Our school is a Title I school in southwest Denver with over 90% living in poverty. My students are special in so many ways! They all work hard to learn and grow even though they have learning, cognitive, speech, behavioral and physical disabilities. The majority of my students come from Spanish-speaking homes and are bilingual themselves. Others don't speak with words but sign or use communication devices. Some of them are reading and writing and others keep trying to learn their letters. Most of them are able to walk, while one of them needs a wheelchair to get around. All of them love to learn and interact with others in the community.

My Project

My students with special needs require many modalities in order to learn new concepts. Visuals and tactile learning tools are great to have in every classroom. It is especially important to have in classrooms for students who struggle with learning.

Having fun ABC cards and dry erase boards will help my students with special needs become more engaged in learning to read and write.

For some of my students, it takes years to learn their ABCs. These great ABC cards with visuals of animals and foods will make learning the foundation of reading a little easier and much more fun.

As students read the ABC cards, they can practice writing the letters on the dry erase boards. Each student in a small group will have a set of ABC cards and a dry erase board of their own. This will also increase a level of independence.

These learning tools will make a huge difference in my classroom!
