Currie Cougars are Blazing a Trail to Learning I teach basic life skills to students with multiple severe disabilities in a special day class in grades 6th-8th grade in California. This is a high-need, high poverty community.

The students with severe disabilities are particularly challenged by the materials that were left behind in the classroom from former teachers, many learning games and manipulatives are falling apart or missing pieces. Many of the students have limited mobility issues and although they get different therapies they need a variety of learning activities to keep and sustain their engagement.

I need resources that will allow students to build upon their basic pre-reading skills such as things that will help them identify letters and numbers. To begin the letter boxes and counting boxes will accomplish this. They are bright and colorful and the pieces are just small enough that the students with limited mobility use in their hands will be able to move them which will also strengthen their fine motor abilities.

Your help will ensure that my students get the best education possible. You will provide them with the tools they needs to strengthen their motor abilities and at the same time learn basic language and math concepts.
