My Students

My students have special needs in Grades 3-5. I enjoy each student in my classroom as they all have great personalities. One of my students is very thankful everyday for being in my classroom. His mother has stated he gets up every morning stating "Kirkpatrick today?"... His mom has stated he enjoys school so much now and she has thanked me several times for changing his ability to love school (she said he hated school last year).

Another student in my classroom is so funny, when he finally gets a concept, he jumps up and down and screams "I did it!!" He is so proud of himself and is excited he has learned a new concept.

My Project

My students have a difficult time using the mouse appropriately on the computer. The touchscreen will give them the opportunity to complete their daily lessons without struggling to hold onto the mouse appropriately. They will be given the opportunity to use the touchscreen to help them complete academic lessons presented to them without struggling to keep their hands in a specific place on the computer. Several of my students struggle with eye hand coordination and this particular screen will make it easier for them to process the activity without any issues. Each student in my class will benefit from this technology.
