My Students

Living in a high poverty area in a rural northeast community, my students overcome many challenges everyday. These kiddos are born and raised in a small and rural community that has a lot of pride in their history and aqua and agricultural contributions to our community.

My students are faced with many challenges, but with more resources could have an authentic learning experience aligned with larger communities and schools.

I have amazing students and they deserve an area that fits them and their learning needs. A learning friendly classroom would promote my students’ overall development.

My Project

With the tactile, fine motor, gross motor, and visually sensitive items ordered my students will be able to learn effectively within an inclusive classroom. Thus building self confidence and pride in learning among same aged peers without the same special needs.

The HI write writing journals will allow my students with special needs the ability to learn letter formation properly alongside their peers.

The tactile manipulatives will ensure cognitive learning on multiple levels for all my students.

Having the large puzzle pieces, gel boards, sand trays, and paint daubers will assist in hand eye coordination skills while accommodating needs. Learning to read and write is challenging enough so the items will allow my students the assistance needed to be successful with their learning.
