Ms. Nuber from Washington DC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexibility in Learning: What We Need to Succeed

My students need flexible seating and pencils, markers, lamination, cleaning supplies and other classroom materials to help them reach their fullest potential. As a functional learning classroom, the students learn independent skills such as cleaning and organization, working with money, and office skills.

My Students

It's not every day in a low income/high poverty high school that you are greeted with big smiles, and even bigger hugs. The students enrolled in this school have a lot to offer, through various resources, creative planning, and elaborate lessons, students find the joy in learning, and love coming to school.

My classroom is full of young, energetic, and creative students who are excited to learn, and ready to show the world what they have to offer.

The 2017-2018 school year brings new challenges to ASHS, for the first time we have a full-time low-functioning Autistic support classroom.

The students have grown so much this year, and have been eager to learn new things, take charge of their learning, and determine ways in which we can make changes.

My Project

As most teachers experience, we get a new set of students each year. We spend hours searching websites for themes, organization hacks, and bulletin boards. Each year I get new students that are completely different from the last set of students. Working in a self-contained Autism classroom has its own set of skills that are required, but for me, I have the pleasure of working with some of the best, hardest working high school students.

My classroom of 8 students have bright futures, with even brighter ideas of what they need to succeed.

Each of the requested items has a specific job in mind, and a way in which it would help my students.

The materials that are being requested are to help my students learn functional academic and independent skills. Classroom supplies such as pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils will be used to help support their learning, and stored in individual cases so that the students will be held responsible for their materials. Many of my students have a hard time sitting still and completing their classroom assignments. The use of flexible seating gives the students an opportunity to release some of their energy and helps them focus on their classwork. As part of the functional curriculum, the students work on skills to help with their independence, students work on cleaning various items and surfaces to help prepare them for their future.

Some of the other items that I am requesting would be used to help students learning. Many of my students are unable to write, or communicate verbally, items such as the lamination machine, laminating pouches, Velcro and binders would be used to make independent resource books for each student based off of their IEP and individual needs.
