Let's Start The School Year Off Right!

My students need two beanbag chairs and three handheld spellcheck devices.

My Students

I'm a Special Education resource room teacher in New York 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!

My Project

I am requesting two beanbag chairs for the resource room. These two beanbag chairs will be placed in the reading nook and will be utilized by students who are reading independently or are in search of an alternate place to complete an assignment. Who likes sitting in a hard plastic chair all day? The three spellcheck devices will be used by my students during writing assignments to correct their spelling. We have traditional dictionaries in the resource room, but locating words in them can be really challenging and frustrating to students with learning disabilities. These spellcheckers allow students to type in their phonetic spellings of words and provide the correct versions of them. Additionally, they add a little bit of much needed technology to the resource room!

By helping to provide these beanbag chairs to the resource room, you are providing students with comfortable alternative places to sit.

These three spellcheck devices will help students improve their spelling skills and bring the Resource Room into the 21st century. Thank you for your kindness!
