Functional Reading Materials and Sensory Tools

My students need bubble seats to help provide sensory input so they can focus on their academics. They also require early literacy materials (readers and pocket chart) to help them learn to read and communicate.

My Students

My amazing students all have special needs. They come from various ethnic backgrounds and have varying disabilities. Many of them are autistic, some have Downs, and the rest have other disabilities. My students make my staff and I laugh and smile on a daily basis. We are blessed to able to work with them. These kids enjoy all of the love and attention we bestow upon them. Please help me give these kids the tools they need to grow.

Thank You for your support:)

My Project

My students would benefit from the use of Flex-Space Wobble Cushions to help them remain in their seats. The bubble seats will help provide the children with the sensory input they crave so they can focus on their tasks.

The All About Letters Pocket Chart, First Little Readers - Complete Library, Lakeshore Fiction Sight-Word Readers - Level 1 , and Lakeshore Word Family Readers will help them engage in early reading skills and teach them to communicate receptively and expressively.

These tools will help all of the students in my class engage in reading at their own functional levels. Thank you for your support:)
