Mrs. Alford from Gilmer TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the Osmo Genius Kit to help them work on letter sounds, numbers, shapes, and more.
My classroom is a co-teach classroom. My co-teacher and I have a class that is half of the class special education and the other half is general education. I'm a special education teacher and my co-teacher is a regular certified teacher. We both are in the classroom all day every day and teach every subject. This allows us to work more one on one with our students. We have several life skills students come in and out throughout the day.
There are several students that have several disabilities that keep them from learning like others.
They need modifications, accommodations, and special devices to better improve their education. There are some that need a lot of patience from the teacher and others are always willing to please the teachers. Everyone is a tutor! Everyone needs help at times! I love how diverse the classroom is. Each one of them, from the nonverbal to the talkative ones, have a uniqueness that they bring to the classroom.
One child only knows how to scream to express themselves. This child needs lots of patience and understanding. One had a stroke while in class and now is a totally different person. Several are very quiet.
Students today are always on technology devices, so I want that technology time being useful to them. I recently was funded for Amazon tablets for my classroom! These devices will engage the students, allow them to play educational games, and entice students to learn.
Stations help the students learn responsibility for their learning by making them depend on themselves and fellow classmates and I want to incorporate this as part of my station time.
During stations, I work with small groups and other students are not allowed to interrupt unless one of the 3 B's occurs (bleeding, broken bone, burning building). This gives students more one on one time with the teacher, while the others are doing independent work, technology, or practicing with certain concepts.
