My Students

A cornucopia of happiness, exceptionalities, and ages is the best way to describe our classroom! We are an inclusion setting where half of the kids are typically developing students and the other half are students with special needs. . Some will continue with us next year while others will move on.

Our students with varying exceptionalities are blessed with the opportunity to grow and learn from the other kids in our room.

They interact socially and verbally throughout the day and learn so much academically thanks to the support they give each other. Activities that span from molding simple shapes and letters with play-doh to pretend play in the house area, our kids have taught each other how to be more patient, understanding, and more giving individuals than when they first started. The setting we have in our room provides them all the opportunity to become more well-rounded individuals and ready to be included in the world we live in.

My Project

Touch screen laptops are a great learning tool for the younger students in the school system. They provide interaction and the ability to have another student assist in the process. Technology is a tool that is only getting bigger and more popular and instilling these practices at a young age is crucial. Special needs students with occupational delays especially in fine motor skills benefit the most from laptops that have touchscreen options. The kids feel powerful when they can take learning into their own hands and guide the process by themselves with minimal guidance and assistance. For a student with special needs, independence is the biggest success out there!!
