My Students

Our students are all from three to five years old. Our classroom is typically their first school experience. The students in our classroom qualify under the education eligibility criteria for autism, with mild to moderate impairments in areas of social skills, language development, and sensory regulation and integration. Our students come from all cultural backgrounds and beliefs. We strive to make our classroom the best learning environment and experience we can for their first school experience.

Our class consists of eight amazing boys and two wonderful girls who all have an IEP (Individual Education Plan) qualifying under the educational eligibility of autism.

Each student has amazing skills and talents. Each student's IEP is created to build from their strengths and support their unique needs. The majority of our students' goals are created to support delays in the areas of social skills, play skills, academics, fine/gross motor, and coping skills.

My Project

We are really striving to implement thematic learning into our classroom. This year we have decided to input a new zoo safari unit. During this unit kids will get to dress up, create homes for the zoo animals, pretend to be zoo animals, and also put together some zoo puzzles. These items will help our students focus on social skills, pretend play skills, parallel play, turn taking, imaginitive play, motor skills, and dramatic play. In preschool we strive to help our students learn how to play and use their imaginations. Our students are also working on social skills and we are hoping these fun zoo animals will encourage language!!
