Goal

To enable my students to have multiple learning opportunities that will meet their need for sensory input and help them make learning gains. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have the opportunity to cook once a week. All of them seek input into the world through different sensory methods. Cooking occupies all of their senses and is a highly motivating activity. Once students have cooked and tasted their creations they will create a cookbook as part of their journaling and writing activities. 

 

Benefits to my students

Cooking is a wonderful way to meet the sensory needs of my students who have severe cognitive deficits. Cooking enables them to have a hands on real world experience to build their background knowledge. Cooking incorporates math and measurement, science, following directions, social skills activities, vocabulary building and lots of language opportunities . 

 

Describe the Students

My students are all ESE students with significant cognitive deficits. They are on a modified curriculum working toward making learning gains. Many students have multiple needs such as visual impairments, physical impairments and hearing impairments.  

 

Budget Narrative

This budget would allow all of my students to experience these learning opportunities once a week for the entire school year no matter what their ability level. Material can be used for years to come.
