Students Need Color in the Classroom to Help Them Learn

My students need a printer and ink for colored worksheets to stimulate learning, whether it's a simple worksheet, some homework, a file folder, velcro sheets, or PECS icons!

My Students

Hey there! We are a great, litte classroom! We are a class of 9 students with a lot of energy. It's a Special Day Classroom that needs constant help. Our main goal in the classroom to make learning more than just fun, but meaningful. Our most important need for learning is through some fun interactions with each other, adults, or our surroundings.

We are all students that need every type of learning there is.

We benefit from kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learning.

My Project

​Different colors, their combinations, and their placement can have an effect on attention, memory, feelings, and behaviors of students. A color printer will provide my students the chance to look at the classroom with better interest. It's biggest use in the classroom will be through our PECS. Students with disabilities sometimes needs different ways of communication. A PECs(picture exchange communication system) chart can help determine a student's needs and desires before it gets too frustrating for a student.

A colored PECS table can make it easier for students to distinguish between the bathroom symbol and the "I want" symbol more than the actual words.

On top of that, PECS can also be distributed throughout the classroom to label items so that there's an opportunity for students to make the connection between the word and the picture

In this classroom, we use file folders a great deal. File Folders can help students practice their ABCs, Numbers, Shapes, and emotions. If the colors on the file folders pop out, we will be able to hold the attention of my students far longer than having simple black and white file folders!
