Ms. Palmer from Tucson AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need an assortment of items that you would find in a typical apartment or bedroom. These items all require skills that will be needed to promote independence and functional living.
I work with students who have intellectual disabilities in a high school setting. The students in my classes are focused on working toward gaining and improving on life skills, vocational skills, and functional academics.
Our campus seeks to have every student obtain the skills necessary for transition to post secondary opportunities.
For some students means college or technical school, for our Life Skills students it means leaving high school equipped to be as independent as possible as a young adult.
We were fortunate enough to obtain a classroom space this year to work on transition skills for post-secondary opportunities. However that space lacks in the area of demonstrating how a bedroom should look and the effort that goes in to keeping a clean and organized space. These materials , furniture, pillows, comforter, etc. will help my students learn functional skills when it comes to cleaning and maintaining a personal area (such as a bedroom).
By having a mock apartment space, my students will be able to practice and build upon the skills needed to be independent young adults.
My students will be able to learn how to wash bedding, make beds properly, organize shelves, fold and hang up clothes in a closet, iron, and vacuum. In a school setting these materials are not common, the following items are needed to teach independent living skills.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
