My Students

Our school is in a large metropolis with many of the same challenges facing other cities this size. As teachers, we're sensitive to the fact that many of our students struggle to get their basic needs met. All students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch. Each year our school has more students who are homeless. Most of our students come to school carrying the heavy load of some kind of significant trauma.

Our class is a self-contained, special education behavior unit.

We have great kids! We just need a little extra help. Our classroom is a safe environment designed to help us focus and learn.

My Project

I am requesting magnetic pattern blocks that will allow my students to build things without becoming frustrated because they accidentally bumped the blocks. Some of my students have ADHD and completing a task is a challenge for them. Students will enjoy creating towers, castles and bridges.

The phonics and shape bean bags will help students learn letters and shapes and strengthen eye-hand coordination while they toss the bean bags to each other.

Students will enjoy counting keys as they put the correct number of keys on the ring. The brochure holder will hold important documents that are needed in emergencies or during a fire drill.

Please help us bring these materials into our classroom by bringing this project to life. Thank you!
