My Students

My students are individuals that work diligently against their learning challenges. My lesson plans are always flexible tools that adapt to their learning style and rhythm. Some days are much more difficult than others, nut at the end of the day it is so rewarding. The best part is when they have an "a-ha" moment. They get really excited because we were able to find the correct tool in order to learn.

My students are part of a Specific Learning Disability (SLD) Program.

Their eligibilities include Autism, Other health Impairments, Down Syndrome, Specific Learning disabilities, Intellectual Delay, and Emotional Disturbance. I don't see this, I see individuals that need just have special ways of learning new material.

My Project

The items I am requesting for my students will serve as tools to fidget away their extra energy. Sometimes a task is too difficult or lengthy and my students require a structured break that does not disrupt the other students in the class.

Sensory manipulatives have been shown to increase their attention span and help them work calmly.

They have a system in which they are able to visit the sensory table for a set amount of time and then return to the task at hand.

The new materials will be much more appealing and calming for my students as they complete their tasks. Oftentimes they are off task because the manipulatives are no longer interesting to them. The bundles and items I have attached to this project range in textures and functions. For example, I have some students that like to fully submerge their hand in objects and the color sand will serve that purpose. The bundle pack of manipulatives has different objects that hopefully will meet the needs of my students.

My students will have the opportunity to earn extra unwind time at the end of the day as they complete their behavior chart. Behavior charts are used to track their progress throughout the day and gives them the opportunity to practice responsibility.
