My Students

My students are an amazing group of 11 sweet kiddos with diverse learning needs. My life skills students are such an amazing group! They really are intrigued with learning more about the world around them and are working towards learning those functional skills they will need in the future.

My classroom consists of seven rambunctious boys and four lovely little ladies.

They are the most wonderful and gracious children you will ever meet. They come from various backgrounds and have a wide range of disabilities.

My Project

I chose a few items that would benefit my classroom and help my students with their social skills by helping them learn how to play cooperatively with their friends. These include a play kitchen, light table and building blocks to help them learn social skills. We work very heavily on social skills and by having the little kitchen and light table, they can learn to share and how to play with their peers.

Dramatic play goes hand in hand with social skills.

With dramatic play time, we learn how to mimic those skills we see daily at home. This is the prime opportunity for my students to learn those imperative skills like how to share and turn taking.
