Basic School Supplies in Need

Help me give my students pens to write their stories, staplers to organize their papers, charts to keep the class organized, and brand new stools to help them concentrate during small group instructions.

My Students

I am a special education teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience. My school is located in the heart of Brownville, Brooklyn. New York City was one of the hardest-hit areas by the Corona Virus in the United States. Many students are coming from a low socio-economic background. There are many students who live in shelters and many more who share space with numerous other families. Most of the students are special needs and come from hardworking families. With the pandemic happening, these hardworking families are struggling to get to work and are overwhelmed.

My Project

My students will use these supplies in all subject areas every single day! I'm requesting charts for students to refer to during independent work time, pens to edit and revise their drafts in writing, new sitting stools to help them concentrate during small group instruction, and other basic supplies to help the classroom run smoothly. These supplies will be used by and assist 30 students. It is important that teachers have basic supplies to conduct the lesson for students to benefit from the delivery of instruction. Teachers are faced with the daily challenge to motivate students as well as to deliver appealing instruction to capture their attention. Our goal is to create a classroom where students are actively engaged and provide a classroom environment that offers plenty of opportunities for learning. Students will also have access to these materials that will introduce or reinforce concepts learned.
