My Students

I work with about twenty special education students who require specially designed instruction in reading, writing, math, emotional support or organizational skills. These students come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of strengths and needs. They work well in the general education setting, but they also often require services outside of the classroom. These students are hard workers and have active imaginations. They are active in the classroom and are fun to work with every single day!

My Project

The students I work with have a variety of needs in and out of their classrooms. Students often come to my classroom to receive services in a small group setting where they can feel successful with their academic and social skills.

This assortment of scintillating sensory supplies will help create an inviting environment for my special education students to learn.

These tools will provide productive sensory input in a meaningful and positive environment. The balls and fidgets will be great for when students need a break from their rigorous classwork, and the electronic math quiz will provide a hands-on tool for my students who want to practice their math skills in a quiet, solitary environment. The drawer sets will provide a place for my students to store their sensory tools and keep them organized! My students and I thank you for the support!
