My Students

My PPCD (Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities) classroom is made up of 11 of the most amazing 3 to 6 year olds. They are love, they are strength, they are compassionate, and they are perseverance. All of my students are special needs, and my classroom is about building self-help skills, communication skills, social relationships with peers and adults, and foundational academics. They are enthusiastic about learning and grateful to have opportunities and experiences like all other children their age. They love to express themselves through art, music, and dance.

My Project

The products that I have selected will help my students create their own masterpieces. All of my students are special needs and some are non-verbal. These supplies will give all of them an opportunity to creatively communicate their thoughts and ideas through art without the need for verbal communication. The flexible seating will support some of my students who struggle to sit in a standard chair and will allow them to have flexibility while they are working. The sand and dough will support those students with sensory challenges and expose them to different textures and smells. The paint, paper, and easel will allow my students to create their own masterpieces to be displayed in our classroom and around our school.

These supplies, with your help, will support my students learning and development, foster their independence, and encourage their creativity.

Thank you for your support! We are grateful to you and for you!
