My students were not given the abilities that other students received to make learning easy. As a special education teacher, I see the gaps my students struggle to close. They need every tool possible to help them achieve success and become lovers of learning. By donating to my project, you will have a part in helping my students become fluent readers and problem solvers! The leveled classroom library will help me teach reading during guided reading and reading stations. The books are fun and enticing to the students. We all know that if the students use a library they love, they will read more. More reading means they will close their reading gaps. Most of my special education students are two years below level. Having the library available to them in the classroom will make the process of reading and checking out more accessible to them. My desire is to increase their reading level every year and make them fluent readers. The math manipulatives will also help my students close math gaps. Some of my students are seriously below level in math as well. The counters and blocks will help them count and have visuals when working out problems. The fraction circles will help them see the fraction and manipulate it so they can retain the information. The money will help them during stations when they purchase items to help them understand money and how to use it. Helping my students now means success in the future! I want to see them become successful members of society who love what they do. A disability should never stand in the way of a child who does his or her part to succeed.
