My Students

I teach special education preschool in a public elementary school. My students are 2-5 years old and have a wide range of abilities. Our school is a Title I school and the majority of my students come from low-income homes. More than half of my students have disabilities, including developmental delays, autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder and anxiety disorders. Because my students' needs are so diverse, differentiation and a wide range of age-appropriate materials are critical to their success.

Despite all of the challenges they face each day, my students are the sweetest children in the world and they deserve the very best!

I want to provide a quality learning environment and help them develop the essential skills they will need for kindergarten and on. This means addressing all domains of their development: cognitive, physical, social-emotional, adaptive, and communication. Having a variety of materials to address each domain and keep children engaged while learning can be expensive. That is why I need your help!

My Project

Teaching preschool requires a lot of materials. Students in my class range in age and abilities, so we have multiple sets of supplies to meet all of their needs. To keep the room from becoming cluttered and chaotic, we need storage options for organizing. This will help clearly define centers. By adding labels to bins, I will help students learn to clean up after themselves, how to be responsible for materials and to independently engage in activities. Making sure our materials are safely put away each day will also help them last longer. The bright colors of the materials I choose will help create a fun and cheery place for my little learners. Please consider donating to help us stay organized and help my preschoolers learn the importance of taking care of our classroom!
