While my class may be labeled as Inclusion, my children work just as hard and are excited about learning new things as students who are in a regular general education class. They don't let the labels that society has put on them define who they are. They give their all and are not afraid to fail. They may stumble at times, but they always get up and try again.
Curiosity runs the world.
The world is as it is because someone was curious and decided to act on it. My students are a curious bunch, and I just want to make sure they have the necessary tools to help them on their journey of discovery. Who knows, I may just have the next Einstein in my class.
All students come to school to learn, and they would like to do so in a way that is exciting. The materials that we are asking for will help us continue to ensure that students have the materials that they need to continue down the road to success. It will relieve some of the stress and the embarrassment of students not having the tools if we had a class set. The snacks will encourage the students and help them focus. We like to call it food for thought. The materials requested will fuel the writers and the readers in my class and, with their stories, turn the world upside down.
