iBelong

AWARENESS, CHARACTER & ANTI-BULLYING
(K – 5/6th Grade)

iBelong is a Common Core-aligned curriculum designed to provide elementary students (K–5/6) a general overview of a variety of specific disabilities as well as to promote general inclusion for all into both the classroom and the community at large.

The iBelong program includes 10 lessons for kindergarten through 5th grades designed to be taught during a 30-minute instructional period. Each lesson engages students in active, multimodal learning, using media, games, books, hands-on activities, class discussion, and group/teamwork.

iBelong lessons present all material at an age-appropriate level, building from year-to-year on previous knowledge. American Sign Language is incorporated into each unit.

“In recent weeks, I’ve heard a 4th grade girl share with a staff member that because of this program ‘I have learned how it feels to be in someone’s shoes that have a disability’.”

Sean MonahanPrincipal, Jean McNair Elementary

This curriculum is a wonderful way to introduce students to life after high school. It is clearly laid out in a professional, workable, and presentable manner. T’NT provides students with high functioning disabilities with valuable information on educational opportunities, employment information, budgets, and independent living. I would recommend this program to any school district looking to empower their students and prepare them for post-school activities.

Megan N.Teacher, Hononegah High School, Rockton, IL

Many of my students feel more comfortable sharing some of their invisible disabilities with their classmates, which I believe is directly related to the lessons taught through OnRAMP’s curriculum, iBelong as they know that all students now have a basic understanding of how to treat others.

Tracy S.4th Grade Teacher, Poplar Grove Elementary, Poplar Grove, IL

T’NT helps expose students to what life is like post high school. I especially liked the mock interviews and how it benefited the students.

Chuck S.Teacher, Guilford High School, Rockford, IL

“Meeting real people with disabilities really provides many teachable and memorable moments.”

4th Grade TeacherJean McNair Elementary

I find that the T’NT curriculum coincides very well with the textbook we use each day in our class. I also find the variety of topics, technology and community partners to be helpful in having the students grasp the concepts we are teaching.

Ryan M.Teacher, East High School, Rockford, IL

I liked T’NT. It helped by bringing in different people to talk about subjects I need to know about for my future.

Lamarion G.Student

“I think the dyslexia lesson gave students a good understanding of the struggle people with this disability go through.”

4th Grade TeacherJean McNair Elementary

The topics we have talked about are very helpful and will pay off later.

Corbin R.Student

“I liked learning more about the different conditions like ADHD and autism. It was educational and fun! And I also learned some sign language!”

Claire4th Grade Student, Jean McNair Elementary

“Having students look at their IEP accommodations and understand what they are is really helpful to them.”

Jayme BoggessTeacher, Belvidere South Middle School
