My Students

My students are eager to learn, I try to provide resources to gain new skills, educational play and structure.

I have children from kindergarten, first and second grades in my Resource Room.

Each kiddo is working with different levels of abilities. We are looking for some items to help engage their little minds and find a love for learning. As well as, items for calming and fidgeting students. I am searching for tools that can help each kiddo succeed.

Because we work within special education resources we cannot say too much about our students, but they are pretty awesome individuals!

A few of our kiddos have a really hard time sitting in a chair, so a wobbly stool can help them be up at a desk/table and be able to focus especially during Daily 5's writing and math time. We also are in need of some new updated books to keep their interest for Daily 5, especially read to self (read the pictures, read, retell the story, read to a buddy). A few of our kiddos have meaningful jobs within the room like our fish tank so there are a few items to help upkeep with it and teach them how to care for our classroom fish (who just had babies!). They are over-the-moon excited.
