My Students

My class is an inclusion preschool special education class. My students are between the ages 2-5 years with about half having special needs such as developmental delays, Autism, and physical disabilities. The other half are typically developing students that serve as social and language role models. Our school is a Title 1 school in southeastern Virginia and a lot of our students come from military families.

My students love to learn through fun activities.

We sing songs, play games, and explore in our fun centers each day to help us learn.

My Project

My students love to play in my cars and blocks center. They learn social skills, fine motor skills, language skills, science, and math in this center. This center is very popular and everyone likes to play together here. We need a bigger rug to accommodate the cool toys we play with in this center and the little bodies as well.

A larger rug will allow the students to build larger block cities and drive cars and trucks to new places.

Their imagination's will bloom with all of the opportunities, and the 6X9 rug will allow more room to build and drive for all of my students.
