My students need some basic classroom supplies for the year: tissues, computer paper, binders, markers, crayons, scissors, and double-sided dry erase boards with coordinate grids on the reverse side.
I work in a self-contained classroom setting, supporting middle schoolers scoring anywhere from the 1st to 7th grade math level. My goal year after year is to successfully teach all of the required math standards, while also finding ways to fully support those students who are not quite at grade level. I frequently use technology in my lessons, and try to incorporate instructional videos and other online components into my students' learning.
I absolutely love what I do, and constantly strive to better my teaching ability by attending professional development tailored to special education and mathematics.
I have found over the years that collaboration and the incorporation of technology are both the most motivating factors that drive learning in the classroom. I find that this is especially accurate in the special education setting, as many of my students are visual and kinesthetic learners. This year, I want to make it easier for my students to have quick access to this technology.
Each year, I struggle to fund all of the supplies I really need for my special education classroom. The following supplies I've requested are the supplies that we still really need, but I could not fund on my own: markers and crayons, tissues, binders, some computer paper for printing my student's worksheets and guided notes, a classroom set of scissors, and double sided dry erase boards with coordinate grids on the reverse side.
As an 8th grade teacher, my students are already required to purchase very expensive calculators, and I would like to limit any other supplies for their parents to have to buy.
Their calculator is over $85, and I would love to be able to say that is the only item necessary for my classroom, besides a notebook and pencil! We do a lot of project-based learning activities in my classroom, as I teach Special Education, and many benefit from more hands-on activities. Because of this, new markers/crayons & scissors would be hugely beneficial. The dry erase board coordinate grids will also be incredibly helpful to my students, because I've found that teaching graphing is really only successful when the students are trying it themselves. I would love to be able to model a graph while all of the students are trying it on their own personal dry erase boards at the same time.
