Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Final Project


Preschool Plan

For this Final Project, you will be given the opportunity to pull together everything you have learned these past five weeks into a cohesive classroom plan for a three- to five- year-old preschool program. The following is the make-up of your classroom.

You have 12 students total: Eight students are typically developing.  One student has an Autism Spectrum Disorder.  One student exhibits the following behaviors but has      not been diagnosed with any particular learning need or disability.  Limited language  Jumps from activity to activity  Engages only in parallel play  One student who has a Sensory Processing Disorder (e.g.      she is sensitive to light, sound, smells, and textures such as paint,      sand, glue, and clothing and she avoids physical proximity to people).  One student who is both cognitively and linguistically      advanced. 

For this classroom plan, you must show your administration or director that you have the necessary strategies in place to effectively instruct each of your 12 students based on their individual needs. You will present this in the form of a PowerPoint presentation. The presentation will be 14 to 16 slides (not including title and reference slides), one slide for each of the following elements:  A title slide  A reference slide  Create a mission statement regarding developmentally      appropriate practices with three- to five-year-olds (i.e. what is DAP and      how does it apply to your teaching of these children?)  An outline of the laws governing exceptional children      that impact your instruction  A description of the classroom environment you will      provide for these 12 children  A discussion of how you will communicate with the      families of your students in order to meet the individual needs of each      child  A description of two to three specific instructional      approaches you will utilize in your instruction, as well as why you feel      your chosen approaches will be effective  An explanation of your instructional techniques/plans      for the eight typically developing students  A description of your instructional plan, including      accommodations, modifications, and services available to your student who      has an Autism Spectrum Disorder  A discussion of your instructional plan, including      accommodations, modifications and services available to your student who      exhibits certain behaviors but has not been diagnosed  An explanation of your instructional plan, including      accommodations, modifications and services available to your student who      has a Sensory Processing Disorder  A description of your instructional plan, including      modifications/extensions for your student who is cognitively and      linguistically advanced. Create a sample lesson plan using the required Lesson Plan Template,      showing how you will meet the needs of all learners for your chosen lesson      (remember, the lesson you choose must be developmentally      appropriate).  It is required that you use the Lesson Plan Template      to complete this portion of your assignment.  It is suggested that      you utilize the Early Childhood and Child Development: Lesson Plan Handbook  as a guide for how to more effectively plan      this lesson.  An explanation of why you feel you have a comprehensive      plan for meeting the needs of all of your students 

You are encouraged to creatively address the material by including graphics, charts, and/or graphs. This presentation must be formatted according to APA style, including the title and reference slides and citing within slides when applicable. The notes section of the PowerPoint should be utilized in order to effectively elaborate on each necessary component. Lastly, you must use at least five scholarly resources (e.g. peer-reviewed journal article, book, website for a special education organization, etc.) as well as the course text. Remember to cite your sources throughout the presentation in order to support your ideas.
