Extreme Makeover: Classroom Edition

My Students

A typical day in my third, fourth, and fifth grade special education class is very rigorous, and students are expected to focus for long periods of time. Most of my students struggle to focus for even five minutes! My students are some of the hardest workers I know, and they are always eager to learn.

I work in a low income community where students cannot afford supplies and most receive free or reduced price lunch.

I strive to give them all that I can both academically and emotionally.

My Project

I am requesting an assortment of backing paper to create an inviting and friendly classroom environment for my learners with special needs. Students with special needs require clean and neat bulletin boards in the classroom in order for them to succeed and become excited about learning. Bright colors make students happy and ready to learn.

These supplies will ensure that my low functioning students continue to have a BRIGHT and successful school year!

Classroom bulletin board paper can be quite costly. My students love when we change the bulletin boards in our classroom to display work that they have created and know my students will thrive in their totally awesome classroom with these materials.
