Ms. Bomber from Beaverton OR is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bowling Field Trip

My students need to go on a field trip to the bowling alley to work on social skills and life skills.

My Students

Temple Grandin once said, "You have got to keep autistic children engaged with the world. You cannot let them tune out." I refuse to let my students tune out. They need to experience the world around them in a way that draws them in and hooks their interest, and bowling is a great way to do that.

If you want to see what awesome looks like just take a peek into my classroom.

We focus on the positive and celebrate every success that our students achieve. Each child has an individual education plan to help them make progress on goals in academics, social skills, communication and functional life skills. They are full of curiosity, energy and incredible potential. Every day we do our best to make sure that our students have the necessary tools they need to succeed, but it's not easy when you have a classroom budget of $200 per year. With the help of Donors Choose, I am able to provide unique and engaging lessons to help my students who experience autism and other communication disorders overcome their challenges and let their abilities shine through.

My Project

My students love bowling. Not like, but LOVE it. During adaptive PE class or rainy day recess they love rolling the ball down the lane and watching the pins fall down. Even setting up the pins is a fun experience for them and becomes a counting activity. I would really love to give my students the experience of going to a real bowling alley where they could bowl and eat their very favorite lunch, pizza! It may look like just a fun activity to keep children busy but, it is so very much more for my students who experience disabilities. Learning to navigate places in the community in a safe and calm manner is such an important life skill. Lessons such as how to eat lunch in a public place, taking turns bowling and sharing the bowling balls can make a difference in the quality of their lives.

Please consider helping me give my students an exciting field trip to the bowling alley.

They deserve the chance to have experiences outside of the school and learn how to navigate in the world around them.
