My Students

"There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all." - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

My students are creative, enthusiastic, and love to learn.

In our classroom, we foster a love for learning while providing 3, 4, and 5 year olds with disabilities the opportunities to develop skills that will build the foundation of learning for many years to come. My students are diagnosed with a variety of disabilities including autism, orthopedic impairment, significant developmental delays, brain trauma, and lead poisoning, but like most young children, they love to learn, have fun, get messy, and play with their friends. Our school is located in a large urban school district in Wisconsin and all of my students receive free lunch through a federal program. My students face many challenges at school and in the community, but are always smiling.

My Project

Having Reading Milestones Level One would be immensely beneficial for my student's with special needs. The program is designed to help student's with delays and dysfunctions in language processing. It is also very visual which is vital for student's who learn differently. While my student's all have access to the general education curriculum, I would use Reading Milestones as a tool to help them reinforce what they are learning and build upon strategies and skills in a way that is easier for them to understand. With my students, it is so important to present them with skills in multiple ways to ensure they are mastering the essential strategies to not only read to learn, but be successful as they progress through their education.

This donation of Reading Milestones Level One would give my students with special needs all the best chances to learn to read.

These programs are designed to help students who learn differently than the typical student. Learning to read can be so frustrating for my students, and this program would help eliminate that emotion and replace it with joy and excitement for reading.
