My Students

I am a full-time K-5 special education teacher at a rural school. My school has approximately 200 students, and the number of students I teach varies from year to year. Currently I have 8 students in my classroom throughout the day. I provide instruction and support for students in all academic areas: math, reading, writing, spelling, science and social studies. Students in my classroom receive small-group or one-on-one instruction for each subject needed.

My goal is to provide support and instruction for my students to be successful in the general education classroom.

The students who come to me are behind their same-aged peers and need a learning environment that fosters independent work skills and encourages critical thinking.

My students love to use manipulatives and supplies that encourage creativity.

My Project

My classroom project is for basic needs that we need to replenish our supplies in order to have a successful remainder of the school year.

Special education teachers need materials to create individualized, specialized instruction for a variety of levels and learners.

The laminating pouches will be used to create task cards and file folder activities for my students. My students are learning independent work skills so it is important that every student has tasks to work at their individual level.

The crayons, colored pencils, notebooks, paint and construction paper will be used by the students to integrate art across the subject areas.

The file folders will be used to keep student task cards/file folders organized and easily accessible.

The treats will be used in the classroom for incentives and motivators. Students may earn these on a daily and/or monthly reward system.
