My Students

Title I School in Hawai'i.

Special Education -Embracing Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Specific Learning Disability (SLD).

My students need to learn early literacy skills, math, science/social studies, personal hygiene skills, how to share, personal space (boundaries), and proper eating/drinking behaviors.

The goal for the students in the special education fully self-contained classroom (ages 3-4) is to get them ready for inclusion and prepared for kindergarten. The Individualize Education Program (IEP) will be my priority to meet the needs of the kids in a safe, comfortable, clean classroom.

My Project

According to the article Nap Time Boosts Learning, sleep can have a positive impact on a child’s long-term ability to remember. Nap-time is important for children, especially for those who experience trauma or unstable environments outside of school, considering that not all children may have had a “solid” night of sleep (Sparks, 2018).

Lakeshore Alphabet puppets, new carpets, and nap-time cots will give my preschool students the opportunity to learn and rest in a comfortable and clean special classroom!

Lakeshore Alphabet puppets will assist us in singing of the Alphabet, and the Alphabet puppet stand will help our puppet friends stand up in a friendly-organized way. New carpets will help students visualize the boundaries for each center. Pom Pom, art dabbers, floating Alphabets, and the calendar kit will help the students learn throughout the day. The easy stack toddler cots will give the kids comfort during nap time after a lot of learning and fun.
