My Students

Have you ever had a difficult time with learning? My students struggle with basic learning skills on a daily basis. All of the students in my classroom have an intellectual disability which impairs their ability to learn the material at the same rate and rigor as their grade level peers.

All students can learn - we just have to give them the opportunity to learn.

The students in my classroom need to have access to materials such as technology, specialized resources, and basic supplies that will allow them to access content on their individual learning levels.

My Project

My classroom is a setting for students with special needs. This means that we need a variety of tools to help reach these awesome students.

All students can learn, so we must give them the tools they need to learn.

My students use technology every day in the forms of Chromebooks and iPads. They need charging stations to help keep these tools handy and fully powered. The stations will help teach the students responsibility and organizational skills.

My students need a Yacker Tracker to help them gauge their noise levels. Many of my students are oblivious to their individual noise levels, so the Yacker Tracker will provide them a visual and auditory reminder when they are getting too loud.

My students need a cash register to help them with their money skills. They have a cash register right now that is broken. We have a class bank and students earn money for good grades and good behavior.

My students need a social skills curriculum to help them learn appropriate behaviors in specific situations. All of my students have deficits in the area of social skills.
