Ms. Ono from Waianae HI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating a Hands on Learning Environment

My students need wobble chairs and a balance ball seat to help them stay seated. My students currently take frequent breaks to get our their jitters. They also need Unifix Cubes, Find the Letter Activity Center and Lace-A-Word Beads for hands-on activities.

My Students

My self-contained classroom is a place of challenge and discovery. In this classroom, I use a variety of hands-on activities. The students in my classroom are unable to learn using the general education curriculum, so I develop my own based on the Common Core Standards as well as their own personal goals and objectives.

My students are excited and ready to learn in this classroom environment because I am able to provide multiple opportunities for them to learn using multiple modalities.

My students love to read, draw, build, and paint. They are always excited to extend their knowledge about their world around them through various sensory activities.

My Project

If I had Neon Heavy Duty Book Bins I'd be able to organize my bookshelf. Currently, I have books in cubby holes. My students are unable to look through all my books and tend to read the same books, since they are not displayed in an organized way.

My students would be able to use the wobble chairs and balance balls while completing their work.

Those chairs would help my students get out their jitters while working instead of taking frequent breaks.

We also need various letter activities, such as Find the Letter Activity Center and Lace-A-Word Lowercase Beads to engage my students in hands-on activities to make learning fun.
