My Students

I teach in a Special Day class for students who have moderate to severe disabilities. My students are broken down into small groups to complete all academic tasks and life skills lessons. The groups are based on their academic abilities, which vary from K-3 grade levels. The students I teach need a great deal of support in developing both functional life and academic skills. Many of them are learning to read, count money, and how to appropriately behave in social situations.

These students have varying needs and require a great deal of flexible seating, manipulatives and tools.

Without specialized equipment and tools, it is much more difficult to ensure comprehension of various lessons. By breaking students down into small groups, based on their abilities, the staff is able to focus on both academic and functional life skills now.

My Project

The use of whiteboards is a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math and writing . Students are broken down into small groups during academics. Groups are arranged by students current academic abilities. All lessons must be taught to various learning modalities. Small, old whiteboards are currently used for modeling and guided practice. The whiteboards allow me to model examples for my students as well as allow them to present their understanding of concepts. The small white boards that we currently have are very old and falling apart. They can also become a distraction as students move them about the classroom. By having white board desks for my students, I will be able to model, guide and check for understanding with ease during small group instruction.

In addition to dry erase desks, I am also seeking some sensory supports for my students who often struggle with attention.

By providing supports, such as weighted vests, students are able to receive appropriate pro-social proprioception input which, in turn, will allow them to better focus on their work.
