My students need a number line, 30 storage boxes, and 20 see and store book pouches.
I'm a special education teacher in Brooklyn, who teaches a group of 12 third, fourth, and fifth grade students with learning disabilities in a self-contained classroom. My school is a Title I school and approximately 97% of its students receive free lunch.
My students learn best when a multi-sensory approach to instruction is taken.
They take in much more content from a lesson when they are actively involved in their instruction through hands-on activities. Magnetic letters, dry-erase boards, plastic coins, teddy bear counters, you name it! All of these hands-on tools are the keys to my students' academic success.
The 30 plastic bins and see and store pouches will be used throughout the year to store books and all of the hands-on "stuff" that my students use on a daily basis. These items are sturdy, so they can be used year after year and they will help keep our classroom supplies organized. The number line will be hung up in the classroom, and my students will use it throughout the year to develop number concepts and addition and subtraction skills.
As a special education teacher, I strive to incorporate hands-on activities into my classroom as much as possible.
These bins, pouches, and number line will be tremendously helpful in keeping our classroom books and supplies organized and ready to use!
