My students need velcro to complete tasks in math, language arts and independent work skills to educate as needed for special needs.
What's easy for you may not be easy for them. My students have disabilities that limit ways they communicate and learn each day. Daily independent activities help my students transfer information learned during teacher instructed activities and apply within file folder tasks.
My students are ages 8-11 and have autism.
Some of my students are verbal while others are unable to communicate with words. We are in a self-contained classroom at an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme Magnet School. They are full of energy and love being active. My students show enthusiasm towards learning and gain independence throughout the year. Although my students are at different learning levels, all enjoy activities that are hands on.
My students need velcro to help them complete file folder tasks independently with less frustration. The velcro allows students to place the solution to the task in a selected place without disrupting previous placed solutions. Students also have the satisfaction of the velcro sticking, knowing that the solution they came up with is in its place. Students will learn to be independent and that they can accomplish tasks on their own with the help of the velcro.
Velcro may seem like such a simple tool but it is very important for those who do not have the greatest fine motor skills.
Students who need the satisfaction of the sound of the velcro grabbing or even feeling the velcro grab feel successful. The success of the student encourages them to be independent and want to work with the file folder tasks. These tasks help with Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Skills. All help the students with autism function in the classroom.Read More
