Give real help

  1. 1. Heather Fern [email_address] April 23, 2010 EEX 4070
  2. 2. <ul><li>I was nervous going into this project but at the </li></ul><ul><li>same time I was interested in learning about the </li></ul><ul><li>different disabilities hands on. </li></ul><ul><li>I didn’t know what to expect and really didn’t </li></ul><ul><li>even know how many children have disablities. </li></ul><ul><li>I was also nervous </li></ul><ul><li>because I didn’t </li></ul><ul><li>know how the </li></ul><ul><li>students would </li></ul><ul><li>perceive me. </li></ul>
  3. 5. <ul><li>I am a part time student in the College of </li></ul><ul><li>Education at UCF. </li></ul><ul><li>I am a stay at home mom. </li></ul><ul><li>I enjoy shopping and spending time as a family. </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>I worked as a pre-school teacher in daycare. </li></ul><ul><li>I also have a lot of experience as a teacher from my own children. </li></ul>
  5. 7. <ul><li>I met with two students, one with a mild case </li></ul><ul><li>of Autism and the other with a learning disability. </li></ul><ul><li>I met with both students on Tuesday’s. I met </li></ul><ul><li>every week for about 2 hours. I started in </li></ul><ul><li>February and ended in April. </li></ul>
  6. 8. <ul><li>I worked with my students on reading and spelling </li></ul><ul><li>words. I also worked with the students on phonics. </li></ul><ul><li>I helped them with beginning and ending sounds. </li></ul>
  7. 9. <ul><li>Sara Wicham has worked at Real Life Christian Academy for the past 3 years now and has a personal connection with all the faculty. </li></ul><ul><li>They were more than happy to work with our Service Learning Group in getting into the classroom to gain experience with more challenging students. </li></ul>
  8. 10. <ul><li>The goal of our project was to go into the classrooms and provide one-on-one time to students who needed it. </li></ul><ul><li>Although the children we worked with were not severely disabled by any means, as we have learned in the EEX 4070 course students with LD, or ADD are going to be apart of our future classrooms and experience with them is needed as well. </li></ul>
  9. 11. <ul><li>Each member of our group worked with different teachers and different grade levels.. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Shirley (Heather & Sara) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Cornett (Allison Carroll) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><ul><li>Second Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Mills (Allison Love) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 13. <ul><ul><li>Fourth Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Stevens (Tiffany & Rebecca) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 14. <ul><ul><li>Fifth Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Perkins (Wendy) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Dove (Sara) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 15. <ul><li>This experience has taught me to remember that students with disabilities will be in my classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Helping Rachael had the most impact I believe. </li></ul><ul><li>I have a better understanding of how hard teachers work. Its hard to have one on one time with students who fall behind or at least give them all the help they need by yourself. </li></ul>
  14. 16. <ul><li>I was personally impacted from this experience by understanding that every child learns differently. It </li></ul><ul><li>may be a different learning style or the student may </li></ul><ul><li>learn differently due to a disability. </li></ul><ul><li>I really enjoyed this project because I was able to </li></ul><ul><li>actually experience the things I have learned about </li></ul><ul><li>children with disabilities. Going through this course </li></ul><ul><li>has really helped me understand and help teach </li></ul><ul><li>these students better. </li></ul>
