My students need a set of magnetic sight-words, a set of magnetic fraction manipulatives, and a magnetic teaching clock.
I'm a Special Education Resource Room teacher in East Flatbush, Brooklyn who teaches a group of 35 students with disabilities in first through eighth grades. My school is a Title I school, and approximately 97% of its students receive free lunch.
Throughout the school day, I pick up students and bring them to the Resource Room for small group academic intervention in reading, writing, and math.
I teach six year olds through thirteen year olds--both tiny students and students who are taller than me! Regardless of my students' ages or sizes, they all LOVE when a hands-on approach is incorporated into instruction.
I am requesting a set of magnetic sight words, a set of magnetic fraction manipulatives, and a magnetic teaching clock. The sight words will be used with small groups of students during literacy instruction and then placed on the classroom word wall. The fractions and clock will be used with various math groups to build skills in these areas.
By helping to place these magnetic manipulatives into my classroom, you will be providing students with disabilities many opportunities for hands-on instruction in literacy and math.
