My Students

My school is located in a large city in Pennsylvania, in a high poverty neighborhood. My students range from 8 to 10 years old, and are in grades 3rd to 5th. They are also diagnosed with Autism.

They are very sweet, loving students, but require a lot of individualization in order to learn.

This requires a lot of materials for differentiation. The class is a mixture of verbal and nonverbal students, which requires additional resources and materials. Some students require a 1 on 1 assistant for daily activities.

My Project

My students really need some better supplies in the classroom. A new pencil sharpener would benefit everyone. The Twist and Write pencils are needed for the struggling writers who have difficulty using standard pencils. The gel pens would help with labeling our parts of speech. A stapler will better collect our work.

Additional social skill activities will help with our communication.

The mood cards will help with self regulation. The conversation cubes will help us talk more. The stretchy bands will help with fidgeting. Please consider helping my students to have a functional classroom equipped with all the supplies they need.
