The Little Warblers team want to thank you for your support. We are guarding our migrating birds and facing the challenges!
The Warblers are a new group comprised of students from the Nirim School for Special Education, educational staff and a professional birder, Shuki Cheled. The Nirim School is for students with behavioral and emotional challenges. These are often expressed through avoiding situations which require coping with difficulties, primarily in the academic arena. As a result students often leave the classroom and wander in the hallways or on the school grounds. Understanding that these settings can be used to benefit our students, academically as well as socially, the school staff turned a dream into reality by creating inviting alternative learning setting. Thus, students who have difficulty learning in the traditional classroom are able to be active participants in the adaptive environment. They have an opportunity to face challenges and experience a sense of mastery and success often for the first time.
Birds stir the imagination in every person. Learning about the characteristics of birds can facilitate a deep internal quest, connecting the child to his personal emotional state. This subject allows for learning that can be adapted to each student’s individual needs.
