My Students

Every morning my students come in ready to go with a clean slate! Behavior and academics are stressed throughout the day in a small environment. Rewards are given daily with a Friday reward at the end of the week. My goal is to have all of my students mainstreamed in an instructional setting.

My classroom is a supplemental emotional support classroom with students in grades 1-3.

The school is located in a suburb right outside of Philadelphia. The school is about 500 students from grade 1-8. The students all have IEPs with behavior goals. Each student has their own unique personality and their own needs, behavioral and academically. They are a fun bunch of students that love to learn but need much direction. The students work for breaks and daily rewards. Many of my students come from single parent homes and struggle with receiving attention and redirection from their parents. The parents are supportive knowing that their child needs help.

My Project

I have chosen a tablet for my students to learn. There are many interactive apps and programs that can be done with an iPad. The students have a hard time concentrating, so the iPad could be a break from the traditional paper and pencil work. During math, the students can use it to practice their skills. During reading, the students can listen to their stories and play interactive vocabulary games. The tablet can also be used as a reward with our behavior system.

These donations will help my students become independent learners.

They face many struggles throughout the day and these donations will help with their concentration. I am trying to build a safe and well-rounded environment and would like for my students to be able to experience as much as they can.
