Mentor Materials for Anderson's Treasures

My students need artistic and writing journals, books, and games to help open up to their mentors.

My Students

Have you ever struggled in school? Special Education has a stigma that is hard to shake. I started a mentoring program, Anderson's Treasures, this year that assigned teachers and volunteers one student in the special education program at our school.

All of my students struggle with some aspect of school.

Some have a learning disability that makes math harder to grasp. Some of my students are reading 3 grade levels below their peers. Some of my students struggle with looking their peers in the eye and starting conversations. All of my kids need a little extra push. All of my kids need to know that they are supported. All of OUR kids need to know that they can do anything they desire with hard work.

My Project

I have requested materials that can help get this mentoring program off the ground and start making a difference in these kids lives. I requested books that can open a dialogue about common struggles I see them having, artistic journals where the mentors and their kids can express themselves through drawings, poems, or letters, and I requested games because sometimes you just need to take a break from it all and play, laugh, and get to know one another.

I have a great group of volunteers that are ready to make a difference in these children's lives, all I need are some materials that can help make it more successful.

Help me to make my students feel like treasures!
