My Students

My students are in a moderate/severe autism spectrum classroom and we want to work on expanding our reading program within the classroom. We spend a lot of time working on life skills, money, community based instruction, and accessing the community for jobs and social interactions. My students enjoy sensory stimulation in the form of swings, fidgets, music, art, and visuals. My goal for each student is to leave high school with the ability to access the community safely and work where they find purpose.My students range from 9th-12th grade and have many talents and gifts.

We are a Title 1 school with students who are wonderful and really try their best.

I have a lot of support from my general education co-educators and we integrate our students together. My students require sensory input throughout the day and they all enjoy arts and working outside. My students ride the bus for at least 40 minutes to come to school without complaint. They enjoy going out into the community and working at jobs like Round Table and CVS.

My Project

The students in my class love to read and they love to listen to a great story. We have a hard time finding material that is educational and at their appropriate reading level. The students have requested more books and magazines that we can read during our language arts class.

We really want to expand our library with more relatable material that catches our interest.

The magazines will be used during our language arts class so that students can have material that they can read during whole group instruction. The stories are relatable and can help to build comprehension. Students can make connections and inferences on the articles. The students picked these magazines to have in the classroom and are hoping to have the chance to read them before the year is out.
