Every Child Can Learn, They Just Need The Right Materials!

My students need interactive materials like pattern blocks, hands-on centers, paint/paintbrushes, write and wipe alphabet/math cards, playdough, and big reading books.

My Students

Have you ever visited a special education classroom where all they have are textbooks and the students do not have hands-on materials or supplies that are engaging to their needs?

My students are in a 4th-6th grade moderate/severe special education day class that is located in California.

They represent a population of a wide range of disabilities, but I like to say they represent a wide range of abilities instead. They attend a regular, public elementary school.

My Project

I am a first year teacher right out of college, and I am very excited to get started with my classroom! I would really like to provide my students with some materials and resources that are really going to benefit them and their specific needs! I have requested a lot of hands-on math and language arts manipulatives because the students in my class will be more engaged and meet their learning goals with these types of resources rather than textbooks. I have also asked for some basic art materials and some calendar/behavior charts which will help me to get my students into a very crucial daily routine.

I have a really great group of special students who I know would really benefit from having these kinds of materials in their classroom.

Students in special education require a lot of hands-on, creative, and interactive materials and resources. Any donations will really make a difference in my students' achievements and experiences at school!
