Ms. Bacus from Tulsa OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands-on Fun with Math and Reading

My students need hands-on math and reading activities: Math Folder Games, Phonics Instant Learning Centers, and other learning manipulative activities to help them supplement their learning of basic skills.

My Students

Working in a self-contained special education classroom is extremely fulfilling. The students bring so much joy to learning regardless of their intellectual disability levels. These students are an amazing group of kids who just happen to have special needs. They work hard and persevere even when it's difficult.

Every day they are ready to go regardless of the sensory and/or intellectual challenges and obstacles in their path.

These students come from a high poverty area where 90% of the students are on free or reduced lunch with a large majority also being of a diverse racial background.

Every day they have smiles on their faces and are ready to learn!

My Project

My students require more time and practice to learn basic skills. These learning activities I am requesting are sure to keep them motivated and on task and will reinforce basic skills. I'm requesting Math Discovery Cans, Clocks, Math Folder games, phonics letter stamps, sight word stamps, Phonics Learning Centers, and other learning tools for individual and group work.

Students will use a hands-on approach in differentiated centers to reinforce individualized lessons and needs.

The addition of these learning tools would give my students a much needed boost and motivation throughout the curriculum. Students who are motivated and excited will be ready to face the challenges ahead of them.
