So Close, Yet So Far Away!

My Students

Distance learning for my students with special needs has been quite a challenge. Every one of my students with learning disabilities are trying so hard to learn all that they can from home. The sad fact of the matter is that we just weren't ready for our classroom routines and our specialized learning to be so abruptly taken away from us.

My Project

The Google Classroom educational games and learning materials that I want to purchase for my students with special needs will really help to keep my students from losing the skills they've worked so hard this entire year to develop. It will help them with their reading and decoding skills. It will help them to practice the sight words they already know now and to learn new sight words that will increase their ability to read. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention how students will be able to practice their math skills as well. The beauty of this project is that students will be able to have fun at home and hopefully relieve the stress that families are facing while trying to juggle home, work, and now teaching responsibilities.
