Deserving Students Deserve the Best Classroom Possible!

My Students

I work in a classroom with students with moderate disabilities. They have disabilities like Autism, Down Syndrome, and Traumatic Brain Injury. They are a group of very sweet students who love to learn. They are so kind and caring.

The students in my classroom come in every day ready to learn.

They make me smile every day, so of course I would love to provide them with all the best supplies and materials. Supplies and materials cost a lot, so any help would be appreciated!

My Project

My students use computers in class, and many struggle with reading, so they need to use the text to speech options on their computer programs. As a result, they need headphones. We have been using the dollar store headphones, and they break so easily.

I am constantly laminating visuals for students on my own, and it would be great to have a laminator readily available in the classroom.

I create my own visuals a lot and would definitely be able to provide my students with more visuals if a laminator was in my classroom.

My students also need a lot of supports when writing, and we do a lot of work with sentence starters. Visuals are always helpful for the students. I bought a magnetic easel for the classroom and this would really benefit my students.
