My Students

I am the intervention specialist in a second grade, full inclusion classroom. Not only do I co-teach in the classroom, but I also manage the IEPs and goals of the seven students with disabilities. In the school system where I teach, more than half of our students are low-income students. More often than not, some of my students come to school without even their most basic needs being met. Even these barriers do not stop my amazing students from coming to school eager and anxious to learn and be the best they can be!

My students' disabilities range from mild to intensive, so I strive to make sure all of my students learn, no matter their ability levels, in this setting.

There is a lot of differentiated teaching and learning going on throughout the day to make sure I am meeting the needs of all of the students. This typically means I need to make sure I have a variety of resources at my fingertips to be able to provide my students with everything they need to be able to learn. My goal is to set them up to be independent, contributing members to society in the future!

My Project

SnapWord teaching cards are essentials in teaching letter, sound and sight word recognition to my students who have a variety of leaning needs! As an intervention specialist, my student's disabilities include dyslexia, ADHD, ADD, and who are on the Autism Spectrum.

SnapWord cards have an image embedded into each word, a body movement, and a corresponding sentence that ensures children use multi-model learning to gain vocabulary and "snap" and store the words into their memory!

Children who are struggling with reading are greatly benefited by SnapWords to get them over their obstacle of reading! SnapWords comprise 75-90% of the words that appear in text that children read! Once my students master all their SnapWords, they will be able to read most anything!
