My Students

Our school is a Title I school that provides a safe positive learning environment to underprivileged children. The majority of our parents in our classroom rely on public transportation because they can't afford a vehicle. The majority also relies on government support to make ends meet including free lunches at school and a bag of food that goes home on weekends to help feed the students and their siblings so they don't go hungry.

Our classroom is a Life Skills classroom.

Our students learn pre-requisite skills that will allow them to interact with their community. We do community-based learning, self-help skills, transition skills, and social behavioral skills in addition to functional academic learning so the students can learn basic skills that might allow them to work or volunteer after public education ends.

This means we learn to go to the grocery store to build money management skills. We also take them out to eat to reinforce manners, socially acceptable behaviors, learn how to utilize a menu, stay in budget, and to pay for items. They also learn how to cross a street, be safe, toileting skills, and other essential life skills.

My Project

These items are for the students to work towards their personal goals as written in their individual education plans. Several of our students are still working on fine motor skills, so hopefully one day they can write. The sorting with tweezers works to hone those skills, and we use the dry erase pockets, markers, and erasers to practice so we waste less paper.

There are several English Language Arts items in the cart that focus on the needs of several students to help them learn to read.

Every student has an ELA item that is meant to help him or her master their personal goal. We have a very wide range in our life skills classroom and all of them are working on pre-requisite skills.

There is also a stem activity and play dough in the project. This is to help the students utilize hands-on learning and to learn through play. This is the best way we have found to get the students to use critical thinking skills.
