Our school is located in rural Kentucky. We have 1/2 of our students that come from families with incomes below the poverty rate. We are also in close proximity to a military base and frequently we have children that are transitioning to a new home and school environment. Besides these challenging situations, we have begun to experience a drug epidemic in our small community which continues to grow and influence the area. Our students have many challenges before they even step foot in the door of the school.
The items in this project will be utilized for our day to day work. We use post it notes to learn to write small notes and reduce the size of our writing (for working on a worksheet). As our Math problems become harder, it is important that we utilize The Voice Calculator to help with not only addition and subtraction, but also with number recognition through verbal output. We are also requesting markers and scented pencils to add additional avenues of sensory input into their day.
Through additional boxes of Kleenex and storage containers we are able to keep the classroom clean and organized.
