Ms. Ellissa's Classroom
Welcome to my class. I want want to take a moment to thank you as a parent for entrusting me with your most prized possessions, your children. I absolutely look forward to spending this school year with each and every one of my students. I believe that this year will be filled with all types of fun and excitement.
Assistive Technology are devices that would allow students with disabilites whether they be visually, learning/ cognitively, mobiley, or hearing impaired to be able to still learn in a classroom setting. These devices would allow me to still meet the individual needs of all the students in my classroom which I find to be very important. It is my first priority to create a learning environment where no students are left out of the learning process.
Examples of devices that can be used for the following impairments.
Visual: braille keyboards, canes, talking or braille watches.
Learning/ Cognitive: portable devices with step by step instructions, reading pens, and medication reminding devices.
Mobility: Wheelchairs, speech to text 9depending on severity),and touchless keyboards.
Hearing Aids: Hearing aids,FM system (teacher wears microphone that transmits to receiver student wears, and speech to text software.
Here, I will provide links to either ogranizations or websites that I would use as possible technology resources for students will disabilites in my classroom.
If you have any other websites or organizations that you feel would be valuable to other parents please post them in the message board.
In this class we will be focusing on our community and different types of families.
Be sure to message me if you find any good books on this topic that you don't think I've seen!
In this class we will be spending a lot of time on the basics in math such as counting and recognizing patterns.
More about me!
Here are some items that will help you to learn more about me! I look forward to meeting and getting to know all the parents of my students.
Here are some links that I think are helpful to helping me know how to teach!
Hi My name is Ms. Ellissa and this is my Reading Rug. Since this class is a Kindergarten class we spend a lot of time Reading on our classroom rug.
In this class we will be learning about different things in science. I usually start off the year with a field trip to the zoo and we learn alot about animals and their features in this class. Here is a multimedia slideshow of our actual trip to the zoo.
Here I am listing a powerpoint presentation that I did about blogging. During the semester I will blogging about different lessons that I will be implementing in the classroom. I thought it would be a good idea so that you as a parent would know the general uses of blogs and how they are beneficial in the classroom.
