Ms. Jimenez from Brooklyn NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Motivating My Class To Request and Learn!

My students need highly motivating games and toys to make learning fun. Objects such as sensory balls, floating alphabet bubbles, pop beads and various themed games will encourage them to use their voices to request.

My Students

My students are 5-8 year old children with autism. They come from low-income families and attend school in a low-income neighborhood in New York. Our school has few resources and not enough funds to meet their needs. My students are unique and charismatic individuals. My students are nonverbal, but are beginning to find their voices through vocal manding (requesting for an item, action, attention or information) and the use of voice output devices. Students on the spectrum need various methods and tasks to learn reading, writing and math skills.

My Project

My class learns best when they are presented academic lessons in various ways. Implementing multiple sensory activities into academic lessons will stimulate my student's academic progress. These highly motivating games and toys will also promote my students desire to request using their voices and devices. Being able to combine their love of games with learning letters, sight words, shapes, colors and numbers will create a classroom full of students eager to learn. By having these activities, my class will be encouraged to learn various reading, writing and math skills while also having fun. Having new and diverse academic games and toys in the classroom will keep my students interested and motivated.
