Ms. Christianson from Indianapolis IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Be Independent

My students need a rug, wobble chairs, large pencils and a pencil sharpener to be successful in class. Many of these items can be used to help students become more independent in the classroom.

My Students

I teach students in 2nd through 5th grade with mild to severe disabilities. In our classroom, we love to sing, dance, and have fun, while also working hard to achieve our goals. My students are creative, talented, smart, funny, great friends, and so much more! Many of my students come from low income households. I also have students who are learning English as a new language.

My students amaze me every single day.

I could not be more proud to be their teacher!

My Project

The items selected will be used to promote independence in the classroom. Many of my students are learning to follow schedules and procedures. All students have different needs to be fulfilled to reach individual goals. Some students need sensory input to work toward goals, and other students need to have a routine of where to go and where to sit in the room. Some students need fun games to learn how to appropriately socialize with peers. I want to make learning fun and exciting for my students.

Supporting our project will help my students become more independent and reach their goals in school!
