I am a first year teacher at P.S 48 which is located in Hunts Point New York. My school has been called the 'Best School in the Universe'. This name is quite adequate simply because the student body is amazing.
I currently teach 22 students in a 3rd grade inclusion classroom. Most of my students receive extra services such as speech therapy, counseling and occupational therapy. In spite of having to face so many obstacles, my students always try their best. They do not allow their disabilities to restrict them in or out of the classroom.
My students are so limited in their knowledge of geography. Countires like Africa and China are foreign to them. I would like to purchase a geography books set that will teach them a basic understanding of the world around them and to also help them appreciate other cultures. I am also requesting variuos supplies such as crayons, pencils and markers that will help them complete this project.
There are several times during Writers Workshop that I hear the phrase..."I don't know what to write!" Most of my students are below grade level because of their disabilities. Because of this, I am constantly trying to acquire additional resources that will make learning a more rewarding and fulfilling experience.
