My Students

Our class is a reverse inclusion ECSE (Early Childhood Special Education) classroom. All of my students are between the ages of 2 and 5. There are 7 children with disabilities and 1 that is our peer model. The peer model is expected to show our students proper behavior and speech. However, most days you'd never know which one is our peer model and which one is a student with a disability. Our classroom is expected to grow before the school year is over.

One of the things that I really love about my students is how kind and caring they are.

They truly look after one another. When one cries, everyone tries to make sure that person is okay. When someone is afraid everyone is quick to make sure that they stand by that person. (We all took a trip to the dentist to help a friend who was afraid to go.) And when someone has a meltdown, they're always there to help clean up.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference to our students. A lot of our students have some sensory needs. A light box will really help them with learning their colors and shapes. It may also soothe some of them. They will also be able to improve their fine motor skills with this light box. Students will be able to trace things, and sort objects.

Special education students learn better when they see things in color.

Our school provides us with a color printer in our classrooms; however, they do not provide us with the ink for the color printer. We'll use the printer ink to make communication boards, and create step by step directions for our littles. I'm finding that a lot of my students struggle with 2 step or more directions. We'll also be able to create more centers to learn with.
