My students need a Large Tricycle and a Three Wheeled Scooter to strengthen their large muscles to help them move more efficiently.
As a teacher for moderate/severe special needs students I strive to provide the best support for all my students. We are a small classroom that is rented on an elementary school campus that schools about 550 general education students. The students come from a variety of schools districts and some travel long distances to attend.
We work as a team.
With the help of exceptional teachers assistance we provide a positive learning environment while helping each student with individual support. Staff and students work as a team.
The bikes will be used to help the students increase their large muscle groups. through learning how to push, pull and pedal with hand over feet instruction. We will help the students navigate their motor equipment on a designated bike path. After some experience and the muscles strengthen, we hope the students will learn how to pedal.
The students will strengthen their large muscles while pushing, pulling and pedaling bikes and scooters.
They will have to use multiple muscles to activate the motor equipment. It will involve their thinking and muscles together to move the equipment.
The students will also be learning turning-taking skills, through the shared use of the equipment.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
