Lamination, Notebooks and Paper To Complete Our Year

My students need thermal laminating pouches to protect the books I create for them. They also need notebooks (used as communication logs between teacher and parents) and wide ruled paper (used for literacy centers).

My Students

My school consists of students from a very low socioeconomic class and most of the families are on welfare. A lot of our students are extremely below grade level in reading, writing and math. They complain about having to sleep on the floor or couch at home and that they don't even have their own bed or bedroom.

These students have moderate to severe cognitive, social and physical disabilities such as Autism, Down Syndrome, Treacher's Syndrome and Intellectual Disabilities.

They benefit from curriculum that is modified to suit their learning levels. They are sweet, kind, caring children that just need encouragement and love.

My Project

My students have moderate to severe cognitive and physical disabilities; therefore, their self stimulating behaviors include sensory stimulation (putting books in their mouths). I create modified books that I laminate to protect the pages from being saturated with saliva. My students also use spiral notebooks as communication books to back and forth between home and school.

Since a lot of my students are non-verbal, it helps to write notes back and forth so their parents know how their day went.

My students also need additional wide ruled paper to practice their letters, numbers and short sentences. This order will give us paper to use till the end of school.
