Rebuilding After Tornado Part II

My students need these manipulatives in order to gain basic concept skills. The things I chose will help them be successful in their educational career.

My Students

I am an early childhood special needs teacher from Plaza Towers Elementary which was hit by an EF5 tornado on May 20, 2013. I have been teaching for 20 years and in 7 minutes everything was lost. There was nothing left in my classroom that was salvageable.

My students are wonderful little people that have all sorts of problems.

No two are the same. I get them when they are three and can keep them until Kindergarten. We are public school based and they attend 1/2 a day. Younger ones are in the morning and older ones in the afternoon classes. Some communicate well, some don't. Some do not even have basic skills that we work hard to teach them. I have had students that learn to walk in my class or ones that are medically fragile that build not only their confidence in themselves, but help strengthen their immune systems. We are a Title I school.

My Project

I have ordered a variety of manipulatives and puzzles to help the child learn language, motor skills, and independence. I want them to feel comfortable and able to expressive themselves with confidence. The teaching themes I chose will also give them some good language skills and be able to match word-object as well as object - picture.

Plaza Towers Elementary special needs students are very special and have very special needs.

These things will help them feel more comfortable and possibly bring back the familiarity that they have lost. It will also help them develop the basic skills that others already have by this age.
