Mobile is The Way to Have a Successful School Day!
My special needs students need an Inspiration Station mobile learning center.
Kids, Kids Everywhere!
I teach a Kindergarten through 8th grade special education class at a rural, title one school in Tennessee. I service students that are on the lower cognitive level and we work on skills ranging from self help skills to multiplication!
Stationary classroom furniture (white board, filing cabinet, etc.)cannot be seen sitting in all areas of the classroom. A typical class period consists of us having 2 different grade/age level groups of students working on 2 different areas. We are only supplied with 1 white board and only have so much wall space to keep stationary furniture for items. This makes it very hard to work with 2 groups at 1 time b/c we cannot all share the same white board, etc. White boards are also TOO far away for some of our vision impaired students to see. They need instructional work to be a lot closer to them.
We need a mobile cart that can move from table to table. This would be a great asset to our class for transitioning from group to group more effectively and in a more timely manner. This also will make it a lot easier on the teachers. They will not have to constantly worry about whether or not the other teacher will need the white board and whether or not all students can see the board from where they are seated. The mobile learning cart will also assist with making activities more hands on and help students feel like they are in their own little classroom, instead of in a room with 2 or 3 other things going on at the same time.
Your help will ensure that all my student are receiving appropriate instructional time in a matter that will accommodate all levels of learners. The mobile learning cart will make the small table they sit at seem like its own little classroom and will keep their attention to what they are learning. I truly feel this will be a great asset to our classroom to better serve our special needs children.
