Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom involves students working on transition skills. These students are working to achieve what may come easily to others. They are from various backgrounds including difficult situations in their home lives that have not been conducive to learning life skills necessary for living day-to-day.
My students focus daily on learning and practice of day-to-day life skills that many other students their age and grade level take for granted.
These students have intellectual disabilities yet strive daily to understand and learn. Their focus in the classroom is learning skills that will help them be as independent as possible when they graduate.
My students are visual learners. They need to see content in bold and vivid colors. They need to see environmental print, diagrams, charts, and vocabulary that will help them be functional in the community. They need the advantage of watching a teacher model problem-solving strategies. They need the opportunity to write and interact with content to strengthen their understanding.
A mounted whiteboard in the classroom will allow my students the opportunity to visualize concepts and link learning ideas.
Currently, my students see a piece of shower tile mounted on the wall. It is difficult to read and write on as it has been used for many years. A board intended for instruction would make all the difference to my visual learners.
