My Students

The students in my class come from a very diverse background. All of the students qualify for Special Education are in a self-contained class for 5/6 of their school day. This is the second year an IAC classroom has been part of this middle school, and these students now have the opportunity to attend a middle school in their neighborhood that offers the services they need.

Not only do these students have special learning needs, but 30% of the class are English Language Learners.

These students are overcoming great obstacles to be successful in the classroom and outside. All of the students in this class also qualify for free and reduced lunch.

My Project

The literacy and math games that I am requesting, would give my students the opportunity to learn by doing. My students are all have special needs and they learn differently than their peers. The use of games and meaningful activities helps them to remember and recall information more accurately and quickly. These resources will be a great way for my students to interact with standards in a fun way.

The donations for this project will help my students improve their reading, writing, and math skills in a meaningful way.

The Can Do! games give students the opportunities to participate in a variety of level appropriate Language Arts activities. These games help to build foundational skills that the students are missing. The Allowance Game will help students become more comfortable with using money and solving problems. Many of the students in my class, need to continue to build these skills so that they can increase their independence. Main Street Shopping will help to develop the students ability to find the main idea in text. These resources will provide the fun and educational experience that students crave to help them become confident in their reading and math skills.
