My students need a durable paper shredder to learn the important job skill of staying on task. Manipulating the paper into the machine's slot also helps develop their fine motor skills. Being able to master this job determines if students are ready for advanced work projects outside the school. Staying on task and improving motor skills may seem modest benefits compared to what "normative" students can achieve, but for my students, it's huge. Another bonus of having a paper shredder is that the end product is sold to the Humane Society. Proceeds are used to purchase items for a simulated classroom "store" to learn rudimentary money and retail skills. My students love their shredding job so much that our old, rickety paper shredder has died and we now have to borrow one from another room. We'd like a machine just for our room -- one that won't overheat (like the previous one did), necessitating a cooling off period, or jam continuously. Please help us purchase a shredder that can tolerate hours of enthusiastic shredding, day after day, year after year. Our students would be so appreciative because of all our school jobs, shredding is their favorite!
