My Students

We live in rural Jones County that was recently devastated by a natural disaster. We are now housed in our new school and the students are very excited to have a brand new school. Our classroom is an intensive need classroom with students will multiple areas of disabilities ranging from Developmental Delays to Autism and Learning Disabilities.

When students are given the ability to learn in a practical hands-on environment, they are very often engaged, stimulated and want to learn as much as possible.

We have noticed that our students' appetite for learning increases and they are more willing to listen and pay attention if they have a more practical or life like task to complete. It is my aim for these intensive need students to become more empowered in their own learning situation.

My Project

The materials will give my students a sense of independence while working with these reading and math materials. The material will be placed in the independent stations to use after direct instructions. This will foster the goal of working independent without direct adult supervision and will foster the opportunity for one on one time with teachers.

Hands-on learning is especially important in my classroom because it allows my students to engage in kinesthetic learning.

It allows students to experiment with trial and error, learn from their mistakes, and understand the potential gaps between theory and practice.
