My Students

My classroom is made up of students in kindergarten and first grade with varying abilities due to a diagnosis of Autism. They do really well when they have the chance to use manipulatives and a multi-sensory approach when learning. They are learning at home for the rest of the year and would really benefit from having different resources. When in the classroom we have a balanced approach of technology, hands on exploration and written work. This project will assist in giving them different tools to use while learning at home.

My Project

My students have been struggling to stay engaged. Parents are having trouble keeping them on technology for any extended period for learning. Teaching in the inner city, most parents don't have the resources to purchase a bunch of manipulatives. They will be able to use the white boards during our Zoom lessons by giving an answer without everyone talking at once. All of them are learning to tell time and will be able to keep practicing using the wipe off clocks. The workbooks will give the students materials because the parents don't have printers to print work for their children. They will be able to use the ten frames to practice counting, adding and subtracting.

I'm so excited for my students to get the math toolboxes!

We were using them regularly in the classroom and they will be able to practice their skills using what they know. It is important to continue using materials that they can use independently or with someone else.
