My Students

My students are very excited about coming to school and learning. They work very hard from the time they step into the classroom on mathematics till the end of the day with language arts. They support new weekly concepts with completing follow up homework. As they prepare for their weekly test, they review or prepare very well for it. Their grades are good in academics and behavior continues to increase.

"Learning happens beyond the classroom" in with class.

My students discuss their ideas and skills in their learning process. They work very well in partners and take turns to complete their group projects. The presentations that they present show how well they are able to apply their knowledge. For home learning, my students share what they have learned in the school with their parents to make home connections. I know my students are growing in academic and social skills from their performance in my classroom. I have seen such great improvement from the first day of school!

My Project

The laptops will help my special education students focus and interact with their learning. The online interactive sites for mathematics will facilitate my students to practice their skills. The students who learn visually can focus on the pictures and math images to show their math work. The laptops will help my students use their computer to practice their mathematics skills as the program teaches them the mathematics concepts for their grade levels. The students can take assessments online to test their learning progress. There are books in mathematics that serve as interdisciplinary learning.

The project will help my special education students focus on reading through online audio books.

The students can listen to the stories and highlight the words as they listen to the author read the books. The online books can be re-read without the aid of the audio to practice their reading skills. Each story has a reading comprehension quiz to test their knowledge of the literature. Students have the option to select topics and titles that interest them the most or correlate with their learning. The students can keep track on the books they read online by checking their history of books read. The laptops aid as a tool for students to be able to read better and comprehend more.
