My Students

I am an Interrelated Special Education Teacher. I work in a school where our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds. As an Interrelated Teacher, I have the privilege of working with students with all types of disabilities. I am functioning on limited resources and equipment.

I service up to 8 students in each grade level.

My students are in special education and the use of technology will help them stay focused and motivated. I move from room to room, as I service my students in different grade levels, to meet their reading needs. They look forward to working with me during small group sessions.

My Project

My special needs students need access to a Microsoft Surface laptop so they can learn to use the computer to type out their stories. The students will be working towards independent work so they need to be able to use the computer for writing, testing and school projects. A laptop will allow my students to access technology in the classroom. At the present time we have very limited computer usage. I would like my students to learn to use the laptop as a tool for their learning.

The laptop will be used for writing, and creating their published work.I have seen the benefits of students having access to laptops.

They will be able to access the programs that we use on the computers such as ABC mouse and Starfall for reading and math.

Students being able to publish their writing in a program such as word would make the finished product so much more polished. I feel like this would give my kids confidence as authors.
