Unfortunately, general education curriculum materials often fall short in meeting the needs of special education students. Last year, I found some amazing resources for adaptive learning books and tasks that made a real difference in my students' educational experience. As amazing as they were, I simply did not have the resources to make multiple sets. This limited their usage in my classroom. This year, I would love to take those materials even further, by providing additional sets to be used by my students on a daily basis. These adapted learning tools are a labor of love, requiring large amounts of paper, laminating pouches, and velcro. My classroom is also in need of daily use supplies. Although many of my students spend about half of their day in my classroom, school supply list items purchased by parents are for their homerooms. This means that I have had to purchase crayons, markers, and cleaning supplies out of pocket. Teaching in a unique space and environment produces unique problems, and I thank you in advance for helping me to solve them. My students' classroom experience will be more colorful and enjoyable with your help!
