My Students

In our little community we work together to build a safe and productive environment for everyone. My small Life Skills classroom is packed with 4 very unique students that all have several goals in common. Some of those goals are to succeed in basic academics as well as function independently in society. Each individual brings joy, excitement and laughter to our class on a daily basis. With four different personalities, the adventures that can occur is never without laughter. On any given day, someone will surely answer incorrectly, drop, spill or just plan make a mess, but that is okay because it is all part of learning. Each little mishap proves to be an accomplishment in it's own way and an awesome opportunity for our little but amazing classroom.

My Project

Our small Life Skills classroom creates an extension of learning and engagement as my students move out of high school and into the real world. My students come from a small rural community with a high number of them receiving free meals which limit the resources available at home. Any opportunity I can give them to advance their education by using hands-on activities will help facilitate their learning. One way to do this is to utilize printable task cards that can be purchased and printed from Teachers pay teachers. Task cards are a simple way to teach and reteach skills to students with disabilities in a hands-on way. Printing out the cards in color and then laminating them helps increase the length of time they can be used and they can be easily cleaned and sanitized after each use. One example is learning how to pay bills. The students are given task cards that show them how much electricity, internet, rent, and gas might cost and then directs them to create a budget and learn how to write a check or pay with a debit card. They can also teach and help students use their math skills in a variety of everyday living. One set of task cards can teach several life skills in a creative and inventive way while on campus as well as continued practice at home. During this unusual time of restriction, these task cards can be an invaluable asset and addition to my students learning for years
