My students are 4th and 5th graders with a variety of special needs! They are kind and loving kids who need extra help in reading, writing and math. Unfortunately, we live in an area with a high poverty rate so many of the student's parents are not able to provide the supplies we need to enrich students' learning.
Students with special needs have to try harder than their peers each day in order to catch up to their grade level peers.
With better and more engaging materials, I can help pique their interest to help them learn!
Pencils, erasers, binders, dry erase markers, and headphones are all learning materials that students are asked to bring as their school supplies. Many of my students come from families that are unable to send these materials so I try to provide them as best I can. Please help me provide these essentials to my students.
We have spent the past two months with only about 20 pencils, all of which have no erasers.
This really takes away from important learning time! My students really enjoy writing on whiteboards to solve math problems. Many of our dry erase markers have dried up!
