Mrs. Petiti from Marana AZ is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Meet Our Special Needs!

My students need a calendar math program, sand timers, dot painters, pom-poms, dough giants, beads, stamps, and various other manipulatives to help them learn their basic reading and math concepts.

My Students

Sitting still is overrated--I want to transfer the high energy of my students to their education! Art projects and interactive materials will help me do just that.

I come from a Title 1 school where about 90% of our students are on free or reduced lunch.

My students are in my classroom due to various disabilities ranging from autism, Down syndrome, genetic deletions, and intellectual disabilities. I have 19 wonderful students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade. They have such high energy and such a wonderful outlook on life. I want to do everything in my power to prepare them for the future.

My Project

This year I had a great increase in attendance of younger students. In order to do what is best for my students, I had to separate them into 2 classrooms--readers and pre-readers. I am really struggling to come up with supplies for my pre-readers. I need items to help with letter identification, number identification, name identification, and various early math and reading skills. The calendar math program, sand timers, dot painters, pom-poms, dough giants, beads, stamps, and various other supplies would help me take my students from pre-readers to readers.

These donations will help improve my classroom in so many different ways.

Letters, numbers, and names are incredibly important concepts. I need a variety of ways for my students to interact with these concepts. This will change their lives through giving them many opportunities for interacting with these concepts. Please help my students by providing manipulatives to help them learn basic concepts. This way, I can help prepare them for their future!
