For most students reading and writing comes easy, but for students with special needs– it’s a little harder.
So teachers have to adapt to their needs to help them succeed in school.
Thats where Katlyn Woodard comes in.
Woodard is a special education teacher at Lincoln Grade School in Washington. Her passion is finding creative ways to help her students succeed. She takes a personal approach to her classroom and says she loves seeing her students succeed.
“It makes me so excited to know that they worked so hard and they are seeing it pay off” Woodard Says
“So, i like to do a lot of hands on things. So we move around a lot. So, a lot of these there’s wiggle seats they can move around in, and sometimes we like to stand up really quick.” She said.
Those hands on activities– like this one– using shaving cream to spell out words… Help students develop skills like spelling, word recognition & meaning.
Woodard plans to use this one thousand dollar grant to purchase inclusive seating– so everyone gets a seat at the table.
“Some of my students have some physical disabilities that make it harder to sit in regular chairs. So have some different seating options will make it easier for them to be involved and for everybody to focus better”
